WORLD | Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus 


When the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus toured in Europe more than a decade ago, one of its performances was at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The Detroit-based musical ensemble began the recital by singing a cappella and later joined in with the bandura, a harp-like acoustic instrument. What followed was one of the most amazing scenes that Anatoli Murha, president of the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus, ever witnessed. "People stopped in their tracks from walking around the Cathedral. We started with 600 to 700 people watching us, and at the end it was a couple of thousand," he said in an interview with City. The Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus is currently touring its "Brothers! We Shall Live!" program, which honors the words of Taras Shevchenko, one of Ukraine's greatest poets. Proceeds from this concert will benefit humanitarian aid efforts in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus performs Sunday, March 15, at Hochstein School of Music, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 2:30 p.m. $10-$25,
