Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus concert tours

The all-male Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus (UBC), under Artistic Director and Conductor Oleh Mahlay, announces its 2007 concert series Bandura – The Soul of Ukraine.

The concerts begin in late March and culminate in June. They will take place in Windsor and St. Catharines, ON; Syracuse, NY; Pittsburgh, PA; New York City; and Chicago.

In October, the UBC will embark on 10-day tour of the eastern United States and Canada.

Bandura – The Soul of Ukraine will tell a many-centuries story about cultural identity, survival and mystery. Because its development closely reflects the history of the Ukrainian nation, the bandura is more than a national musical instrument: It is the voice of Ukraine.

This inspiration has been a guiding force for the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus since its inception in Kyiv, Ukraine in 1918.

For more information on the concert series, please visit their website here or call UBC President Anatoli Murha at 734.658.6452. Check your local newspapers for concert advertisements and announcements.
