The folk band is a regular participant of the artistic events that are held in our University, in L’viv and other cities. Every year, the chorus of “Cheremosh” performs at L’viv festival “VelykaKoliada”, and every autumn the singers traditionally set off to Rakhiv to attend Festival “Gutsulskabrydzia”.

Today “Cheremosh” is supervised by artistic director and balletmaster – PipashVasyl, chorus conductor – OlenaVolchek and director of orchestra – Roman Dolnyj. The band’srepertoireincludes dance and vocal music compositions of Bojkivshchyna, Transcarpathians, Bukovyna, Gutsulshchyna, arrangements of songs and orchestra compositions made by famous Ukrainian composers and also thematic programs – Rizdvyana, Velykodnya and Shevchenkivska.

Both – the poetic content and the lyrics of Cheremosh songs are built up on the best traditions of the national music compositions, about which our Ukrainian writer PavloGrabovskyj said: “What a melodius and beautiful music, not to tell about classical simplicity and ingenuousness, inspiration!” “This is the source, from which our descendants will enrich themselves for a long time”.

Being one of the “Cheremosh” band is not limited to mere participation in rehearsals or performances – it is a lifestyle for all its members. Overdecades, the band has created its own special traditions, that are sustained and transmitted from generation to generation.
