Bravissimo: A Tribute to Volodymyr Shesiuk

Sunday, October 24, 2021 at 2:00 pm


Maestro Volodymyr Shesiuk earns our highest praise as a distinguished musician, conductor and teacher. His remarkable professional journey began as a violinist and conductor of the Lviv Opera and Ballet Theater of Ukraine. The Barber of Seville, Madame Butterfly and Carmen were part of his repertoire as Conductor-in-Residence of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, Russia.  Countless performances, awards and accomplishments have spanned his musical career. It is a privilege that Maestro has been the Music Director and Conductor of the Livonia Symphony Orchestra for 27 years. 


Please join us as we honor, in accolades and music, Maestro Shesiuk’s creative and formidable contribution to both the Ukrainian and musical community.
