The Ukrainian Dnipro Choir of Edmonton, founded in 1953, has just begun its sixth decade of singing. A non-denominational mixed-voice community choir, Dnipro’s membership encompasses singers of all ages and occupations. Its repertoire draws from the large and immensely rich repository of Ukrainian choral music of all genres – sacred, art, and folk – with a special emphasis on the performance of contemporary and newly-commissioned works.
60TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERTS
On June 29, 2014, Dnipro Choir began its 60th anniversary with a concert at home in Edmonton and continued with a concert tour in Ottawa, Montreal, New York City and Calgary.
Dnipro Choir, currently preparing for its 60th Anniversary Concert “Musical Kaleidoscope,” pursues an active schedule of annual concerts, community appearances, vocal workshops, and weekly Monday evening rehearsals. For more on past activities, see About Dnipro.
