French Ambassador takes to the stage in Kharkiv

Isabelle Dumont plays cello with the Symphony Orchestra of the Kharkiv Regional Philharmonia

Another captivating performance was in the city of Kharkiv in north-eastern Ukraine. French Ambassador to Ukraine Isabelle Dumont played cello with the Symphony Orchestra of the Kharkiv Regional Philharmonia.

Isabelle Dumont, French Ambassador to Ukraine: "This is such a pleasure for me. The first concert in Ukraine and the first time I'm performing with a professional orchestra, because I don't consider myself a professional cellist, first and foremost I am a diplomat."

The French Ambassador is known for her great musical education which began when she was just 7 years old. Isabelle Dumont says she brings her cello to wherever her diplomatic mission takes her.
