"Two moments were unforgettable for me this season: the resonance after the J. Roth memorial concert in Brody, when I received many touching comments from foreign guests of the festival. And, in the days following that, when five articles appears in leading newspapers and six news items were broadcast about the project on German and Austrian TV. There's also when the Austrian audience exploded in applause for the Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Dudaryk Choir peformance of Beethoven's Ninth. The passionate responses among the international community to cultural projects delivered at both domestic and on foreign venues bear witness to the success of the Ukrainian Institute mission: representing Ukraine as a vibrant and accomplished actor in the international cultural arena. It is a new and much-needed level of experience in international collaboration at the ground level that helps lift a nation to the next tier of perception and understanding in the world."
