Vesnivka's 54th Season of Song

We begin our 54th season of music with Oleksander Koshyts; a composer, choirmaster, arranger, musicologist, ethnographer, writer and lecturer. This program will feature the sacred and secular works of Oleksander Koshyts. 

A selected quotation from an article written by Koshyts:

"Our song - our greatest treasure, the heart that pulses blood through the nation's veins, the image and mirror of our soul, the wealth of our language, the eternal source of our nation's strength and health, the Gospels of our morals and the testament for our future."

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. We are sure our listeners will enjoy this concert of traditional as well as contemporary Ukrainian carols and New Year's songs, enriched with a folk instrumental ensemble.

In the spring of 2020, we are excited to present soloists of the Ukrainian Art Song Project in KOBZAR, a concert commemorating the 180th anniversary of the publication of Taras Shevchenko's famous collection of poetry, featuring music written to his poignant words.
