About Us

Imagine the fusion of Ukrainian and other ethnic cultures, a diverse program of folk, classical and contemporary song, music, and dance. That’s the Shevchenko Musical Ensemble, a unique combination of mixed voice choir, mandolin orchestra and folk dancers!

And although the Ensemble’s roots lie in the Ukrainian community, its repertoire includes Ukrainian, Russian and other folk songs and dances, popular operatic arias and choruses, Canadian folk and contemporary songs and music, and classical orchestral music.

The Ensemble has been delighting audiences throughout Ontario and beyond for more than 55 years. Each Ensemble concert also presents outstanding instrumental and vocal soloists who perform with this unique combination of choir, mandolin orchestra and dancers.
