One of the priceless gifts of the Ukrainian Byzantine Rite is its choral liturgical repertoire. To celebrate the new recording of the Resurrection Divine Liturgy by Fr. John Sembrat OSBM we cordially invite you to attend a concert on Friday, April 19th  at 7:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s:

Resurrection: Music from the Ukrainian Sacred Choral Tradition.

This concert will feature a male chorus of over 50 singers from Canada, Ukraine, and the United States, under the direction of one of the leading choral conductors in North America, Swiss-born Michael Zaugg of Pro Coro Canada. This extraordinary performance is part of a concert series that will showcase the liturgical music composed by Fr. John Sembrat OSBM as well as other timeless music specific to our Paschal services, including masterpieces from renowned Ukrainian composers such as Dmytro Bortniansky, Artem Vedel, and Roman Hurko.
