Christmas concerts by Ukrainian choir "Dudaryk" in Copenhagen


Get ready to be enchanted by the timeless melodies of Ukrainian Christmas carols!Join us from Dec. 16-18 as the renowned boys’ and men’s choir "Dudaryk" from Lviv, Ukraine, embarks on a special three-day concert tour across Copenhagen.

Mark your calendars for these magical performances:

"Dudaryk” will bring the heart of Ukrainian Christmas traditions to you.

Founded in 1971 during the challenges of Soviet occupation, they became a shining example of Ukrainian musical excellence. Notably, they made history by performing under the Ukrainian flag in the USA just before the Declaration of State Sovereignty of Ukraine.Their mission is to enrich and promote Ukrainian musical heritage globally while preserving the centuries-old tradition of choral music in Ukraine. Christmas concerts in Copenhagen promise to be a captivating showcase of Ukrainian Christmas carols and traditions.

"Curating Dudaryk's concerts in Copenhagen is a distinct privilege. Our aim is to enable this exceptional choir to resonate abroad during wartime, bringing the rich tapestry of Ukrainian choral tradition to the Danish audience, all while championing Dudaryk's philanthropic cause—dedicated support for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, the harsh reality looms: should Ukraine not prevail in its struggle against Russia, the current mobility and melodic prowess of Dudaryk's members may be traded for a different role on the front lines, alongside a myriad of other professionals—artists, scientists, engineers, poets—who have already answered the call to defend global freedom.

As Christmas approaches, marking the second year of separation for millions of Ukrainian families, these concerts serve as a poignant intersection of solace and solidarity. For both the Ukrainians seeking refuge and the Danish audience, the harmony of Dudaryk becomes a source of joy and hope from Ukraine," says Nataliia Popovych, Chairperson of Ukraine House in Denmark.

Their mission extends beyond music; Dudaryk aims to enrich and promote Ukrainian musical heritage globally while preserving the centuries-old tradition of choral music in Ukraine. The upcoming Christmas concerts in Copenhagen promise to be a captivating showcase of Ukrainian Christmas carols and traditions.

“I emphasize the vital role of performing abroad, not just as a musical endeavor, but as a psychological respite from the realities of war. Performing abroad becomes a meaningful avenue for us. Every concert we hold, every contribution we receive, all income and fees generated by Dudaryk go directly toward supporting our country's defense capabilities. This takes on a profound significance as we strive to represent and safeguard the rich tapestry of Ukrainian cultural heritage on the global stage,” says conductor Dmytro Katsal.

Dudaryk also fights for the cultural heritage of Ukraine through projects like "Acceptance," challenging historical misconceptions and collecting Ukrainian songs that were erroneously claimed by others.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of music, tradition, and unity this December. All concert profits will be donated to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, supporting their fight for sovereignty and against ongoing Russian aggression.

The event is organized with support from the Embassy of Ukraine in the Kingdom of Denmark.

Decolonizing Mindsets for Security in Ukraine and Europe19.4.2024 07:00:00 CEST | Presseinvitation

Dear Friend of the Ukraine House, In 2024, we still witness the consequences of imperial ambitions and the legacy of colonialism affecting international relations in Europe and threatening European security. The full-scale Russian war of aggression against Ukraine showed the real danger of ignoring the voices of the colonised, repressed and persecuted, and regarding only the former empire as a worthwhile stakeholder in international relations. What would the world have looked like if Russia wasn’t received with impunity after it launched its brutal wars of recolonisation against Ichkeria, Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine? Perhaps currently we would not be facing the largest war in Europe since the Second World War.
