Benefiting Humanitarian Relief in Ukraine
Internationally acclaimed cellist, composer and multilingual vocalist IAN MAKSIN returns to Chicago's Epiphany Center for the Arts, 207 S. Ashland Avenue as part of his North American “Cello for Peace” tour to support peace in Ukraine. Saturday, September 10, 7:30PM. The tour is underwritten in part by Lifeway Foods and Acutia
Joined by international musicians of the Zaria Band, Maksin will play music from his two most recent releases “The Alchemist” (2021) and “Sempre” (2019) as well as some new original music that has not been recorded yet. He will also sing from his collection of songs in at least 30 languages including Ukrainian, Polish, French, Spanish, Italian, Yiddish, Hebrew, Arabic, Armenian, Farsi and many others. And lastly he will share his latest single “Rain Again” ("Знов Дощi”) which he dedicated to the people of Ukraine and proceeds from its sales benefiting humanitarian relief in Ukraine.
“This war has deeply affected me” Maksin said. It is my mission, as a human being and as an artist, to do everything possible on my part to support the people of Ukraine by raising humanitarian funds and sharing my music with those who need it the most during these dire times. I believe that music will help bring peace, first into our souls and then in the world around us.”
Maksin is donating a portion of the proceeds from the ticket and merch sales to “For Wellbeing”, a Chicago-based nonprofit whose mission is to create mobile medical units in parts of Ukraine where hospitals and clinics have been destroyed by war.
Ian Maksin has created his own unique style by blending elements of different genres and traditional music from around the globe in a new way, using his cello as the primary unifying force. Born in Leningrad, he began playing guitar and piano at age 3 and cello at age 6 at the School for Gifted Children in Leningrad, then came to the U.S. at 16 to continue studies at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. After working for many years in the classical genre, including a three-year tenure with the New World Symphony in Miami, he decided to look for his own musical path. His diverse musical experience, including playing rock and blues guitar, and passion for jazz and world music has allowed him to take the cello to a new dimension and develop his own distinct style as a musician and composer.
A portion of the proceeds benefits humanitarian relief in Ukraine.
