World acclaimed cellist, composer, and multilingual vocalist, Ian Maksin, returns to Fort Myers for a concert to support peace in Ukraine. Ian will sing in Ukrainian, Polish, French, Italian, Yiddish, Armenian, Farsi, and several other languages (he is fluent in 30 languages) and will also share original instrumental music from his latest release The Alchemist, as well as some brand new compositions that haven’t been recorded yet.
Breaking Boundaries both musical and geographical, Maksin has created and developed his own unique sound by blending elements of different styles in a new way using his cello as the main unifying force. He sings in more than 30 languages and is equally brilliant in every genre in its pure form, from classical to jazz and blues, and from Latin to Balkan and Middle Eastern music.
All of the proceeds from this concert will be directed to humanitarian relief in Ukraine via For Wellbeing, a Chicago-based non-profit organization that works directly with volunteers in Ukraine. For information about their relief efforts and donations please see forwellbeing.org.
