Ukrainian performer takes to stage to help fellow countrymen

A PERFORMER whose family have experieced the war in Ukraine first hand will be taking to the stage of Stratford Playhouse to help raise money for humanitarian aid.

Professional aerialist and dancer Maksym Korbun will take to the stage on Sunday (April 17) just two weeks after his mother’s flower shop was destroyed by a Russian missile strike.

Maksym, who has lived in this country with his British-born wife Sophia for a number of years and who has just become a dad, will be performing alongside singer Karl Loxley.

The two became close friends ten years ago when they performed together in the show Now and Forever The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Chart-topping classical singer Karl came to prominence when he appeared on The Voice. He has since performed all over the world and recorded a number of hit albums.

The show will be raising funds for The British Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
