Anna Khmara has performed various solo parts as a pianist in orchestras, playing compositions by Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Sebastian Bach, Niels Gade, Astor Piazzolla, and many other composers. She is also experienced in playing the organ, harpsichord, and celesta. Chamber music plays a significant role in Anna’s career, and she has been giving concerts since 1994 in Ukraine and abroad. Recently, Anna Khmara has been working on a thesis focused on the instrumental music of Ukrainian composers from the 18th century. She has published several articles in specialized publications and magazines for a wide audience. Anna has actively participated in numerous conferences, presenting various aspects of music-making during the 18th century.

Antonina Krysa is a Ukrainian solo, chamber and orchestra violinist. She played in the Kyiv Chamber Orchestra, which is known for performing traditional classical repertoire as well as works by contemporary composers. She has been on many tours, nationally and internationally (Europe, Japan, South-Korean). Upon moving to France from Ukraine in May 2022, she began working at the Orchestre National de France as part of the Philharmonie de Paris mission project that supports Ukrainian musicians exiled in France. She is also a member of the Quatuor Bleu et Or that popularizes the Ukrainian repertoire.

Nataliia Ivanovska is a Ukrainian chamber and orchestra cellist. She played in the Odesa Philharmonic Orchestra. Since the full-scale war started, she is a temporary resident of the Orchestre de Paris as part of the Philharmonie de Paris mission project, as well as a member of the Quatuor Bleu et Or that popularizes the Ukrainian repertoire.


The 1991 Project is a non-profit association whose purpose is to promote Ukrainian music in France and in the Western world. It is led and inspired by Anna Stavychenko, a musicologist, music critic and classical music producer. The production of concerts, cultural, and educational events gives visibility to the Ukrainian musical repertoire, in its tight connections to European cultural traditions. Most of the musicians with whom the 1991 project collaborates are participants of the Philharmonie de Paris mission project that helps Ukrainian musicians exiled in France.

The Columbia Global Paris Center addresses pressing global issues that are at the forefront of international education and research: agency and gender; climate and the environment; critical dialogues for just societies; encounters in the arts; and health and medical science.

Each year the Institute for Ideas and Imagination brings together a cohort of 14-15 Fellows, half of them Columbia faculty and post-docs, the other half artists and writers from around the world, to spend a year together in work and conversation. The Institute fosters intellectual and creative diversity unconstrained by medium and discipline through the interaction of the arts and academia.

Columbia Global brings together major global initiatives from across the university to advance knowledge and foster global engagement. Those initiatives include the Columbia Global Centers, Columbia World Projects, the Committee on Global Thought, and the Institute for Ideas and Imagination. Our mission is to address complex global challenges through groundbreaking scholarly pursuits, leadership development, cutting-edge research, and projects that aim for social impact. Our long-term goal is to reimagine the university’s role in society as not only a nexus for learning and intellectual exploration but also as a catalyst for creativity and impact locally, regionally, and globally.


Nestled in the Montparnasse district, Reid Hall hosts several Columbia University initiatives: Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the Institute for Ideas and Imagination, Columbia Undergraduate Programs, M.A. in History and Literature, and the GSAPP Shape of Two Cities Program. This unique combination of resources is enhanced by our global network whose mission is to expand the University's engagement the world over through educational programs, research initiatives, regional partnerships, and public events.

This event will take place in Reid Hall’s the Grande Salle Ginsberg-LeClerc, built in 1912 and extensively renovated in 2023 thanks to the generous support of Judith Ginsberg and Paul LeClerc.
