The Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus

Enchanting the world since 1918

www.bandura.org

Founded in 1918, the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus has a longand proud history of representing the bandura and Ukrainian choral music on the international stage.  Boasting a repertoire of more than 500 songs, this internationally celebrated and award-winning ensemble has captivated audiences in major concert halls in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Ukraine since immigrating to North America from Europe in 1949.   They have also performed for such noted personalities as former President Richard Nixon, former President Ronald Reagan, movie star Jack Palance, and former President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk.   Most recently, the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus was featured at the internationally renowned Stratford Summer Music Festival (2004 and 2010), and presented Bandura Christmas International with Metropolitan Opera soloist Paul Plishka.  As a tribute to its role in preserving and perpetuating the legacy of Ukrainian music, the Chorus was selected by Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers as the recipient of the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian State Prize, the highest award that can be bestowed for excellence in the contribution to the arts.
