Canadian Bandurist Capella holding benefit for Nebesnya Sotnya

We received an appeal from one of our friends to let people know about this great concert. Full text of the email is below:

Dear Friends and Colleagues of the Canadian Bandurist Capella,

Since the end of November 2013 most of us have been following events evolving in our Ukraine with a very keen interest.  We read news articles, watch videos, connect with Twitter and Facebook updates just to stay informed and feel an urgent need to assist our brethren back home.  
Now there is a way you can personally get involved and help the families of our fallen heroes in a huge way.  This coming Saturday 24th May at 7:30pm, the Canadian Bandurist Capella will be holding a benefit concert at St Pius X Church at 2035 Bloor St West Toronto.  This concert has been organized to ensure all profits will be channeled to support the families of the Nebesnya Sotnya.   This is not the only benefit performance that the Capella has been a participant.   We were also part of the Canada & Ukraine Together Benefit Concert of 28 March last at the Living Arts Centre Mississauga, were a significant amount of funds were raised for this cause.  

As Ukrainians we all rally around the Tryzub our National Symbol (Coat of Arms) and our National Instrument the “Bandura”.  We are therefore delighted to have as guest performers the Vira Zelinska Ukrainian Youth Bandura Capella “Zoloti Struny” as part of this event.

The Performance on Saturday will be conducted by our Artistic Director Andriy Dmytrovych and is steeped in our national traditional Kobzar art-form lased with patriotic, spiritual and folk pieces as well as unique works specifically written and developed to depict the struggle at the Maidan.  

The folks at the Maidan devoted countless days and took immeasurable risks in hopes to enshrine true democracy in Ukraine.  We are simply asking you to devote just two hours of your time to come to our concert and be entertained by two outstanding Capellas. We know you will be moved by our performances which will fulfill your Ukrainian Sprit and enrich your Soul.

Tickets will be available at the door or alternatively they can be arranged through our ticket email or by phone at 416-232-2514.

Come help the families of our fallen heroes by attending our concert on Saturday evening.
