An Invitation from member, Heather O'Donnell of The Green Room
"GreenHaven - Artists United" is the inaugural event for a residency program for refugee artists in Cologne.
THE GREEN ROOM (TGR) is a non-profit support center for performing artists encountering crisis situations and a first point of contact for artists who wish to build a new artistic life in Germany after leaving oppressive situations. Immediately after the start of the war of aggression on Ukraine, artists found their first artistic home away from home at the TGR.
The event "GreenHaven - Artists United" presents performances, talks as well as exhibitions by friends of the Green Room. Ukrainian-Armenian jazz singer and activist Laura Marti performs with Ukrainian jazz pianist Nataliya Lebedeva. American jazz legend Richie Beirach, also of Ukrainian descent, performs his own works. The women's choir "Ukraine" performs together with dissident musicians Maksim Andreenkov and Anastasiia Kolabanova. The initiator and director of The Green Room, pianist and psychologist Heather O'Donnell, performs the solo variations of the American composer Frederic Rzewski: "The People United will Never be Defeated".
