Vesnivka's 53rd Season of Song

We begin our 53rd season of music with REMEMBERING HOLODOMOR, a concert commemorating the 85th anniversary of the horrific famine-genocide in Ukraine. We are pleased that the Gryphon Trio, as well as the Elmer Iseler Singers, their musical director Lydia Adams, and soprano Antonina Ermolenko are joining us for this important commemorative event. This program will feature some of the most poignant music written for choir and chamber trio.

Christmas concerts have been an annual tradition with Vesnivka where glorious Ukrainian Christmas music is enjoyed by our audience year after year. This year's Christmas Concert is no exception. Listeners will enjoy this concert of traditional as well as contemporary Ukrainian carols and New Year's songs, enriched with the folk instrumental ensemble.

In the spring of 2019, we are excited to present LET OUR SONG TAKE WING, featuring the music of Ukrainian Canadian composers set to words conveying memories of Ukraine and its rich folk traditions. We are sure you will enjoy these beautiful melodies written by our talented composers!
