‘SPIRIT OF UKRAINE’
Saturday 15 July 8.00pm
Devised and led by one of Ukraine’s foremost musicians, the pianist and composer Alla Sirenko, this very special concert will celebrate Ukrainian music in song, bandura (harp) and piano.
The 65-string bandura will be played by two of its leading performers, Julia Kogut-Kalynyuk and Kateryna Trachuk who, as singers and players, form the duo Dvi Doli. The concert will feature well-known classical favourites as well as Alla Sirenko’s original compositions. There will also be readings of Ukrainian poetry in English by the award-winning BBC actress, Marcella Riordan.
The Music Festival is grateful to the Ukrainian Cultural Association in the UK, and its Founder and President Alla Sirenko, for making this concert possible. Funds raised through this event will be in aid of the Children’s Hospital in Lviv.
