I am so excited to announce that the Yara Arts Group will be hosting an open Ukrainian village singing workshop with Yevhen Yefremov in the East Village on Friday, Nov 18, 6:30-9:30 PM. Prof. Yefremov is in town for the Chornobyl Songs Project, and is *the* foremost expert in the polyphonic singing traditions of the Ukrainian village. He is the founder of Drevo, a professor of ethnomusicology at the Kyiv Academy of Music, and a truly amazing and inspiring vocalist and teacher.
You do not have to be able to read Ukrainian or musical notation to participate, but you must pre-register. The price for the 3-hour workshop is $30.* Call or email Yara to register: (212) 475-6474 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
