Kaufman Music Center & Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival Co-Present

Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival: Forest Song

Friday | March 18 2022 | 7 pm


Kaufman Music Center is proud to co-present the Ukrainian Contemporary Music Festival.
* Ticket proceeds and donations for this event will go to humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.

Join us in the forest to explore a powerful source of Ukrainian traditions and mythologies. Named after Lesia Ukrainka's poetic play, this concert reveals contemporary composers’ preoccupation with the natural world and the myths that have grown from the mysterious settings of Ukrainian forests in the North. Mixing instruments and voices with electronics, we present varied realizations of life in the woodlands. The concert culminates with Alla Zahaykevych’s sonic journey through the Polissya region, a site of feral, mystical lands, increasingly depleted since the Chornobyl nuclear disaster of 1986.
