Celebrating 57 years of choral excellence

Vesnivka is Canada’s pre-eminent Ukrainian women’s choir

“We are a group of dedicated and passionate women who share a love of singing and are committed to the preservation and enrichment of our Ukrainian choral tradition”

Vesnivka and TUMCC strive to share our Ukrainian culture through our music with diverse audiences in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), in Ontario, throughout Canada, and around the world. As such, we aim to make our music accessible and enjoyable for all listeners and performers. However, we acknowledge that systemic racism, ableism, and other forms of discrimination mean that those who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC), and those with disabilities, or who are members of the LGBTQ2S+ community face multiple, often overlapping barriers to accessing the arts.

Over the coming years, we will aim to expand our approaches to programming, to focus more intentionally on collaborating with groups from the above-mentioned communities and to reviewing and improving the accessibility of our performances and written materials for people with disabilities.

Vesnivka and TUMCC welcome singers of all backgrounds and identities. As immigrants and descendants of immigrants, we understand that differences in identities, backgrounds, and languages are strengths that enrich our lives, our communities, and the choral landscape. 

Our Mandate is to promote ukrainian choral music.

For more than 50 years, Vesnivka has played an integral role in the Canadian and Ukrainian-Canadian choral communities. From its humble origins as a school choir for girls in 1965, the choir has grown into a powerful voice in the world of choral music, bringing Ukrainian classical, contemporary, sacred, and folk choral music to Canadian audiences and to audiences abroad.

Vesnivka has collaborated with leading Canadian and Ukrainian choirs and ensembles including the Elmer Iseler Singers, the Orpheus Choir, the Amadeus Choir, the Victoria Scholars, the Toronto Children’s Choir, the Gryphon Trio, Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus, Canadian Bandurist Capella, baritone Pavlo Hunka, Alexis Kochan, Utrechts Byzantijns Koor, and the Kyiv Chamber Choir.
