From ravioli to perogy… and everything in between!
The program will feature a veritable smorgasbord of songs from
Ukrainian and Italian traditions, plus Georgian, American and
Canadian songs and more. Here are just a few of the numbers
you will hear…

The Ukrainian “anthem” Dnieper Roars
Georgian folk Friend’s Song
Cinema Paradiso from the film soundtrack by Ennio Morricone
Ave Maria by Caccini
Funiculi, Funicula! and much more

Shevchenko Choir
Although its roots lie in the Ukrainian community, the choir has always performed songs of others, Canadian folk songs and more. It has performed across Western Canada, in many cities in Quebec and the USA, and twice toured Ukraine, appearing on such stages as Massey Hall, Ontario Place
Forum, Hamilton Place, National Arts Centre, Kiev State Ballet &
Opera Theatre and many more.

Coro San Marco
Coro San Marco began in 1995 as an Italian choir but has since grown
to welcome members from many different backgrounds, and its repertoire
has grown at the same time. The choir has performed on its own
and with other choirs on many stages around Toronto and beyond
including as part of the 350-voice choir with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra to close out Toronto’s Olympic bid of 2001.
