24th November 2022 @ 7pm GMT
The Barn at St John’s College, Oxford
We’re thrilled to invite you to the first concert of our 2022-2023 season, and our first in-person event since the COVID-19 pandemic, with Ukrainian bandura duo Dvi Doli.
Dvi Doli is made up of classically trained professional musicians Julia Kogut-Kalynyuk and Kateryna Trachuk from Lviv, Ukraine. The duo specialises in traditional Ukrainian folk music. They arrived in Oxford in May 2022, after fleeing Russia’s war in Ukraine.
Music has always been a huge part of the duo’s life. They began playing the bandura (a Ukrainian plucked string folk instrument) at the ages of 5 and 9, and then obtained Master’s degrees in bandura and voice at Lviv National Music Academy, named after Mykola Lysenko, Ukraine’s leading musical conservatory. They have toured in Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, and Spain and look forward to sharing their love for Ukrainian traditional folk music with audiences across the UK.
The concert will mark our first in-person event following the COVID-19 pandemic and will take place in The Barn at St John’s College on 24th November 2022 at 7pm. The event is free and open to all with registration through Eventbrite.
