Show your support for Ukraine via our platforms

Dear composer/musician,

We at Gaudeamus are shocked, saddened and appalled by the news coming from Ukraine. We strongly condemn the invasion and the tragic and pointless loss of lives.

We are working as we speak on several artistic and charity events to show support to the rich culture and musical history of Ukraine. On shorter notice, we want to use our social media platforms and international reach to make a statement. However, we feel that instead of making a ‘corporate’ and perhaps empty statement, it would be better to offer our platforms to anyone who feels personally connected to Ukraine and the war.

Therefor, we ask anyone who wants to do so to send us a personal video (or written) statement, via e-mail to We will share these statements via our Facebook and Instagram channels. If you send us a video, please make sure that it is no more than 2 minutes long.

We will publish the statements we received spread over the next days and weeks. We reserve the right to refuse statements.

Thank you,

Martijn Buser, Rogier van Splunder and the entire team of Gaudeamus
