Contact: Halyna Lazurko Home 15936 Patricia Drive Edmonton Ab T5R 5N4 Cell Phone: 587-984-7502
Biography

Akolada is a mixed choral ensemble comprising 13-16 singers (sopranos, altos, tenors and basses) with a passion for Ukrainian folk music sung in traditional and contemporary choral arrangements. The group’s name appropriately comes from a musical term that unites voices from the treble and bass musical lines.

Notes

The relatively small size of the group and high quality performances make Akolada ideal for any occasion with an audience that appreciates Ukrainian folk music. Our repertoire and commentary is customized to the occasion and we strive to connect with the audience and elevate the event ambience.
