Ukrainian Village Voices is thrilled to host our first in-person public vocal workshop in quite some time: Songs from the Front: Ukrainian Soldier Songs. We welcome back incredible vocalist and ethnomusicologist Marichka Marczyk to lead it!

We invite you learn Ukrainian soldier songs in the traditional polyphonic style of Ukraine. Marichka has spent years traveling on expeditions to record songs from the oldest villagers for posterity. These ancient soldier songs find new meaning and relevance in the wake of the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, and as Marichka’s brother fights on the front line. Marichka will focus on teaching us rich and challenging multi-part harmonies.

Join us on Friday evening, December 2, to learn these powerful songs together and preserve this ancient vocal tradition. We’ve missed you and can’t wait to sing together again!

(Please note that proof of vaccination is required by the venue.)
