Arise Ye People!

Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus
Hryhory Kytasty, Conductor
No. 16
The Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus was organized in Kiev, capital of Ukraine, in 1918, and was dedicated to the memory of the greatest Ukrainian poet, Taras Shevchenko. It consists of 30 male singers, each of whom plays the Bandura, a national Ukrainian instrument.
The Bandura became a very popular instrument in Ukraine in the 16th century. It has 30 to 60 strings, ranging through five octaves which are plucked by the fingers. The Bandura unifies, to a certain degree, the principles of two instruments, that of the lute and harp. The sound of the Bandura is somewhat emphatic but gentle.
The Ukrainian Bandurist were admitted to the United States as permanent residents. Since 1949, this Chorus has given constant performances in the leading concert halls of the United States, Canada and Western Europe, arousing the greatest enthusiasm wherever it performed.
