CAROL OF THE BELLS / Shchedryk (Ukraine / Poland)

March 4, 2023 @ 10:00 am to approx. 12:30 pm

Immortalized as one of the most scintillating and enlightening Christmas songs, “Carol of the Bells,” adapted from a popular Ukrainian folk melody, came to represent the spirit of brotherhood and unity all over the world.

The peaceful and neighborly existence of three families, Polish, Ukrainian, and Jewish, sharing a large house, musical evenings and merriment in the city of Stanislaviv in the years preceding and post war, is shattered by invaders, first in the Nazi then the Soviet occupation of Ukraine. Death and loss come to these families, but the healing power and joy of “Carol of the Bells” will be everlasting.
