Ballet West is extremely grateful to all of the musicians, artists, and production personnel who donated their services for this important event.  Special thanks to Salt Lake County Arts & Culture for waiving the costs associated with performing in the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre. 

This hour-long concert featured members of the Ballet West Orchestra and friends from the classical community and was conducted by Ballet West Music Director Jared Oaks and conductor Gabriel Gordon. Several short orchestral works were interspersed with chamber music, all by Ukrainian composers. In addition, two pieces were  danced by Ballet West Company and Academy dancers, choreographed by Ballet West Principal Artist Emily Adams and Ballet West Academy Faculty Jessica Baynes.
