In July, I had the opportunity to tour to Ukraine to perform a series of concerts with the Lastiwka Ukrainian Orthodox Choir and Orchestra and the Pavlychenko Dancers, both from Saskatoon.  The choir was founded and is directed by my father, Larry Klopoushak, and I have sung and played with this group for decades now...  (a scary thought.)

The concert tour, called  "Спадщина - Witness the Legacy," took us through six Ukrainian cities, performing the three-hour vocal-choreographic concert to sold out crowds across the country.  We also had the opportunity to work with renown Ukrainian ensembles such as Holos in Chernivtsi, Cherkassy Ukrainian Folk Choir, and the inimitable Veryovka Choir in Kyiv.
