The VSO Presents A Tribute to Ukraine a concert celebrating Ukrainian music and artistry. Maestro Boris Brott was originally scheduled to conduct the concert but tragically died on April 5, 2022. The concert will now be led by VSO Associate Conductor, Andrew Crust.
The program will include works by various Ukrainian, and Canadian-Ukrainian composers, and feature guest vocalist Canadian-Ukrainian Olesia Shewchuk, singing the Canadian and Ukrainian national anthems and Lutsenko’s Kieve mee.
Net proceeds will be donated to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation. If you are unable to attend the concert, but would still like to support the Canada-Ukraine Foundation with a donation, please do so directly through cufoundation.ca.
Note: Due to concerns from the Ukrainian Canadian Congress regarding the Red Cross, the VSO has decided that the net proceeds from A Tribute to Ukraine will instead be donated to go to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.
