Yara Arts Group (www.yaraartsgroup.net), under the direction of Virlana Tkacz, will stage a concert-theater event, “Koliada and Music from the Carpathians," at the Ukrainian Museum. The Koliadnyky, an ensemble of winter song singers from the Carpathians, will sing traditional winter songs and perform brilliant troista instrumental music from the villages of Kryvorivnia and Verkhovyna. THe songs are incantations that assume the magical power of words: "what is said, will be so." The evening will include a musical performance by special guest bandurist Julian Kytasty.
