Yury, why are your charity projects important to you?
"As a public figure, I have the possibility to reach a bigger community to raise awareness of social causes, themes and projects. I am aware of my fortunate career and social circumstances, but also know that many people are far less blessed and live difficult lives. My humanitarian work and causes is one way for me to give back to the community."
Yury Revich‘s hidden talents are writing and film making. Also in this areas, you can‘t overlook his humanitarian engagement!

Yury Revich supports „Voices of Refugees“
The net profit of this crossover-concert supported the integration initiative „Voices of Refugees Choir“, under the supervision of Kerem Sezen. The choir was given the possibility to play together with famous artists like Yury Revich and actress Mercedes Echerer.
Yury Revich also initiated the charity concert series „All for Autism“ for the Austrian Umbrella Association for Autism in Austria.
With music as a universal language, this musical crossover project has the possibility to reach different interest groups and raise the awareness of autism.
We are very happy that this public work project showed its first results at the beginning of 2018, when the diagnosis could be cleared through the Austrian Social Security system.
This successful concept is still going strong and the next concert will take place on April 28th, 2019 at the famous Wiener Musikverein.
