Thames Concerts is delighted to welcome the unique 6-piece band Freedom Pulse into the series for the first time. Formed in the UK by Ukrainian musicians now based locally, they play a variety of music with a broad stylistic range, with or without improvisation.

Freedom Pulse have travelled widely on tour, including to Italy, Poland, Germany, South Korea and the UK. Here in the UK, they have also performed with Gavin Greenaway, the Emmy award-winning conductor, pianist and composer (Gladiator, Pearl Harbor, Shrek, Wallace and Gromit). Greenaway has arranged works especially for performance by Freedom Pulse from the repertoire of the celebrated German film score composer and music producer Hans Zimmer, and there are more collaborations planned.

Freedom Pulse have played for charity events to raise money for helping Ukraine during the war.

The programme for this event will include music from a variety of genres, including classical, pop, film, and music from Ukraine.
