A true celebration of the North End with Ukrainian, Aboriginal, Filipino, Jewish, Russian, Scottish and Polish music, ranging from glorious Ukrainian choral concertos to songs in praise of curling, hockey and perogies! Conducted by Mel Braun, the concert will feature guest artists and storytellers, including poet Katherena Vermette, composer/actor Danny Schur, guitarist/composer Vince Fontaine, a klezmer group featuring Daniel Koulack, and children string players from the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s Sistema Winnipeg program. Southenders, come north! Northenders, come in!
