Tonight! Link to live stream!THE BANDURA RETURNS to Carnegie Hall! On Sunday, December 4, the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus will be returning to Carnegie Hall to take part in “Notes from Ukraine: Celebrating 100 Years of Carol of the Bells.” This year marks the 100th anniversary of the North American debut of the most famous four notes in the musical world. On October 5, 1922, the Ukrainian Republic Capella performed Mykola Leontovych’s "Shchedryk" in New York City’s Carnegie Hall for the first time to North American audiences, sparking its journey to becoming the beloved Christmas classic known around the world as "Carol of the Bells." Alongside the beloved “Carol of the Bells," the Ukrainian Children’s Choir Shchedryk, Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York (as seen on SNL), and the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus of North America will perform the famous carol alongside traditional Ukrainian Christmas songs and contemporary Ukrainian choral works. New York City’s Choir of Trinity Wall Street will present Ukrainian works influenced by English traditions and American composers with ties to Ukraine. Special guest performers include soprano, Janai Brugger, and Toronto-based Ukrainian folk singer, Marichka Marczyk.This event is co-presented by Razom for Ukraine, The Ukrainian Institute – Kyiv, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, and the Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival. The UBC is grateful to the Self Reliance NY Federal Credit Union for making our participation at Carnegie Hall possible.
