*Enchanting the world since 1918*
Founded in 1918, the *Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus* has a long and 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*, 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*.
