13-year-old violinist Karolina Protsenko welcomes everyone in the shopping area to her acoustic performance with Oscar Stembridge as they perform together for the first time. Oscar has an acoustic guitar with him, and Karolina has her violin.
Karolina starts to talk about how many bad things are happening in the world with Covid and the war in her homeland Ukraine. ‘In our world, we need more peace, love, and hope.’
Oscar starts to play, and then Karolina jumps in and plays along. Karolina begins to dance while playing, and then Oscar starts to sing with a surprisingly powerful voice for a young boy.
The two play and sing ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. It was written in 1971, but the lyrics still ring true today. It encourages listeners to imagine a world of peace, where everyone lives in harmony.
Many people gather around them and stand in awe at the beautiful playing and singing. People record and complement the two musicians and get massive applause from the crowd.
Karolina Protsenko is 13 years old, and she performs as a violinist. She was born in Ukraine into a musical family, and her parents play guitar and piano. Their family moved to the U.S. years ago when she was 6 years old.
