The Barvinok Choir
The Barvinok choir (Barvinok meaning Periwinkle in Ukrainian) has been an integral part of the life and work of the AUUC Vancouver organization since the establishment of the Ukrainian Labour Temple in Vancouver over 75 years ago.
Since 2001, Vancouver musician, Beverly Dobrinsky has conducted the Barvinok Choir, which currently has a membership of 25 singers who perform regularly in their own hall, as well as in the community at large.
As the Barvinok Choir reaches out to the Vancouver choral community at large, it acts as an ambassador of Ukrainian cultural traditions, particularly Ukrainian choral music, as well as continuing to preserve and celebrate these traditions within its own community, following in the footsteps established by groups like the Milestones, the Whiskey Jacks, the Lyonok Trio, the Senior’s Choir, and the AUUC Jubilee Choir within the Vancouver AUUC.
