Stand united with the Orpheus Choir in this glorious musical tribute to our Canadian values of respect and inclusion with the Ontario premiere of Larysa Kuzmenko’s The Golden Harvest. Commemorating the 125th Anniversary of Ukrainian immigration to Canada and their arduous journey to new beginnings, this dramatic oratorio combines with John Estacio’s deeply moving ode to peace, The Houses Stand Not Far Apart, in a grand choral Sesquicentennial celebration honouring the history of courage and perseverance that has built our diverse Canadian culture.
Guests: Renowned vocal artists Andriana Chuchman, soprano and James Westman, bass-baritone, the Vesnivka Choir (Kvitka Kondracki, Artistic Director), the Toronto Ukrainian Male Chamber Choir, the Orpheus Choir and the Orpheus Concert Orchestra under the direction of Robert Cooper.
