We stand with Ukraine

To contribute to broaden the experience of future members of classical orchestras Animato Foundation is organizing since 2006 European-wide Animato Orchestra Tours for young musicians during their academic education.  

The many Ukrainian music students having fled to Switzerland and who have been offered a study place at a Swiss music university have usually received from the respective university an instrument for temporary use until the termination of their music studies.  

Animato Foundation has developed under these conditions an instrument support program – if necessary – to finance a respective new instrument and give it as a present to the respective Ukrainian students having successfully terminated his/her university studies and is willing to return to Ukraine potentially after the peace treaty.  

This donation by Animato Foundation should ensure that educated young Ukrainian musicians return to their home country in ruins with an own instrument to insure their university studies or their successful start as a professional musician.
