Our annual popular Christmas Concert is held in early January as part of the celebrations for Canadians of Ukrainian descent. Joined by its partner, the Toronto Ukrainian Male Chamber Choir, this year’s program will feature traditional and contemporary Ukrainian Christmas carols and New Year’s songs accompanied by a chamber orchestra. Orchestral arrangements were written by prominent Canadian composer Eric Robertson, as well as Ukrainian Canadian composer Zenoby Lawryshyn and Ukrainian composer Victor Stepurko. Guest artists include sopranos Natalya Matyusheva and Katherine Semcesen and tenor Justin Stolz, with narration provided by Lada Darewych. A reception will follow, where choristers have an opportunity to meet with members of the audience to celebrate the Christmas season together.
