Benefit For People Of Ukraine

UPDATE: Thank you to our sponsors and guests, we raised nearly $15,000 for the Orphan Grain Train. Thank you to the Orfeo Trio for such a wonderful concert and to Richard Messner for his delightful playing.


The Wichita Grand Opera and the Orfeo Trio are coming together for a concert to benefit the families and children of Ukraine. All proceeds from this event will go to the Orphan Grain Train, they are sending air cargo shipments of supplies to those in Ukraine. Click the link to see The Orphan Grain Train’s Journey.

The concert will start at 6:30 pm at the Wichita Country Club and will be accompanied by dinner.

The Orfeo Trio was formed in 2012 in Wichita, Kansas, where they began their career as the official Piano Trio of the Wichita State University College of Fine Arts, School of Music. The three members of the Orfeo Trio (Pianist Julie Bees, Cellist Leonid Shukaev, and Violinist Evgeny Zvonnikov) are active performers with considerable chamber music experience. We thank the Orfeo trio for graciously donating their time to support this wonderful cause.
