Ukrainian Musical Guests

 

On November 1, 2012 Josyf Cardinal Slipyj School had the pleasure of hosting some impromptu musical guests from Ukraine. Mykola Sikora is a vocalist and operatic tenor who bears the title of Merited Artist of Ukraine. His wife, Olena Sliusarenko, is a pedagogue and choir master at the Kyiv Children’s Academy of the Arts. After touring the school, they were very much impressed by how the arts are interwoven into the curriculum and marvelled at the musicality of our orchestra and choir. Mr. Sikora gave four little concerts, one to each division, and treated us to selections from the rich repertoire of Ukrainian song. Our guests departed with a deepened understanding of arts education at our school as well as a desire to maintain a connection for future exchanges, while our students got a unique chance connect to their Ukrainian musical heritage performed by a great dramatic tenor.
