Founded in 1918, the all-male Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus (UBC) has a long and proud history of representing Ukrainian bandura and choral music on the international stage. Today, the majority of Chorus members are 2nd and 3rd generation Americans and Canadians. Fortified by a whole new generation of young musicians, the Chorus has captivated audiences in major concert halls in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Ukraine since immigrating to North America from Europe in 1949. Members of the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus volunteer their time and talent for the mission of the ensemble. Based in Metropolitan Detroit since 1949, the ensemble is composed of talented musicians that come from all over North America; including Alberta, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
