More About the Event

From early Kyivan Orthodox Chant to the folk-inspired Dumka compositions of the 19th and 20th centuries, our musical journey will celebrate Ukraine’s rich and diverse musical heritage using recordings and videos made by their accomplished musicians.

This event is part of a collection of talks, recitals, and workshops at the library, designed to encourage exploration of music in new ways.

Whether you are an absolute beginner with no musical background, or a professional musician wishing to learn more, all are warmly welcomed for these sessions.
