Step into a captivating musical world with "A Kolomyika Fantasy," a fundraising concert presented by the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra (SJO) in support of the Ukrainian Museum of Canada in Saskatoon. This extraordinary musician experience will feature an all-star lineup of Ukrainian-speaking Canadian vocalists including Slavko Nohas and Kateryna Khartova, alongside the dynamic tenor saxophonist Jerrold Dubyk.
Scheduled for March 9 to coincide with the birthdate of the renowned Ukrainian poet, Taras Shevchenko, this concert will be a unique blend of art and culture. We will honour Shevchenko's poetic legacy by setting some of his poetry to original and respectfully crafted jazz compositions, offering a special new and musically inspired perspective on his timeless works. For more info on Shevchenko visit this website.
The concert program extends beyond Shevchenko's poetry, delving into the rich Ukrainian musical tradition. We will be reimagining original and traditional Ukrainian songs, infusing them with jazz interpretations to create a unique and innovative sonic experience.
