Music of Old Ukraine
February 1, 2020 @ 7:30 pm
JULIAN KYTASTY, bandura & ROMAN TUROVSKY, lute
A program exploring the solo song traditions of old Ukraine that brings to life a multitude of voices—light-hearted students and serious churchmen from the great baroque academies, Kozak gentry musing to the accompaniment of turban or lute, early singer- songwriters like Hryhoriy Skovoroda and also the blind singers (kobzari and lirnyky), who absorbed all these strands into their own oral tradition and kept the music treasures of old Ukraine until a new one could be born.
General Admission $30; Seniors $20; Students $10; UIA Members free.
