Imagine being part of the Ukrainian Art Song Summer Institute from August 13-19, 2018 at the The Royal Conservatory’s TELUS Centre For Performance and Learning in Toronto.

The Ukrainian Art Song Project was established in 2004 with the dream of acquiring and promoting the classical treasures of Ukrainian art song.  This ground-breaking initiative, founded by internationally renowned bass-baritone Pavlo Hunka, aims to record and publish a veritable anthology of over 1000 art songs by more than 26 of Ukraine’s greatest composers for world-wide distribution, performance and enjoyment.  Equally important is introducing Ukrainian art songs to students in international conservatories and Faculties of Music.  The Ukrainian Art Song Project is supported by an international cast of artists and enthusiastic music lovers and is managed by a volunteer Board based in Toronto, and will leave an extraordinary musical legacy to the world.
