Event Notes


Ukraine, Lviv. Coffee, chocolate, cobbled streets, and music. Music that conquers hearts and overwhelms with its beauty.

For the first time in Edmonton, one of the top Ukrainian bands will transport you to the atmosphere of a European jazz festival. Harmonizing the energy of folk music from different continents, cultures, and eras: Ukrainian folk, American jazz, blues, modern electronica - all of this and more is ShockolaD. The band leaders Igor Hnydyn (drummer, composer) and Anastasia Litvinyuk (pianist, composer) are both graduates and long time faculty members of Lviv National Music Academy, MacEwan's partner university, and they are among the best Ukrainian musicians today.

The concert will be a fundraiser to support students and academics affected by the war in Ukraine.

This Lviv band believes that music breaks boundaries and unites people and cultures around the world into one. For those who are looking to get an unforgettable musical experience, we would like to invite you to ShockolaD concert on February 4 at 7:30 PM.

Latecomers will not be admitted.

For more information, group bookings or for accesibility seating call 780-497-4470, Monday - Friday, 12:00 - 3:00 PM.
