The festival ends on a high note at the east-end’s historic Ukrainian Hall with lively music, high energy dance and exquisite costumes at the Ukrainian Hall Community Concert & Supper. This annual favourite, produced with the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians, features the Barvinok Choir, Vancouver Folk Ensemble and award-winning Dovbush Dancers in a new staging of choreographer Pavlo Virsky’s “We Remember”.
To celebrate the Festival theme Seeds of Justice, Seeds of Hope we have invited the celebrated Canadian gospel trio The Sojourners. Singers Marcus Mosely, Will Sanders and Khari McClelland sing songs that reinforce the “links between the early spirituals, gospel and activist folk music which all arise from hope, faith and courage” (Marc Lindy, Gospel Train). To remind us of our strength and history, Solidarity Notes Labour Choir (Earle Peach, conductor) shares the stage with the Barvinok Choir (Beverly Dobrinsky, conductor) for a finale of rousing songs of social justice that inspire hope and possibility.
Immediately following the concert is the always-delicious traditional Ukrainian Supper. The best full meal and concert deal in Vancouver!
