Folk Concert - Luna Ensemble

In the Ukrainian language, luna means 'echo'. The Luna Ukrainian Ensemble performs folk songs and ballads both ancient and contemporary. Whether these closely woven harmonies echo across the steppes of Ukraine, or throughout an auditorium or church in Canada, they depict the heart of a people in love with music and nature and eager to share their colourful and symbolic heritage.

Many of the folk tunes, ballads and carols Luna sings are a cappella. Their music originates from a profound love of the freedom of expression that music gave the Ukrainian people during very troubling and oppressive times. It is very evocative and picturesque, sung in an old language but still able to stir the modern heart.

Luna consists of Motria Koropecky, Marilyn Kowalchuk, Olga Lang, Yaroslawa Woloshyn and Pati-Ann Lawe. For more information about Luna's upcoming performance at our museum, please click here.
