About the Show



Edmonton’s Viter Ukrainian Folk Choir began in 2008 as an extension of the Viter Ukrainian Dancers. As an ensemble, Viter has become recognized internationally for their dynamic innovation as a group of choristers, musicians and dancers, interacting to create a lively blend of storytelling. Viter recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with an original concert presentation, At the Bazaar, at the Arden Theatre in St. Albert.


Under the choral direction of Lesia Pohoreski, Viter Ukrainian Folk Choir performs traditional Ukrainian songs with beautiful harmonies, unbridled energy and contemporary flair.  They performed to enthusiastic audiences at the Bloor West Village Toronto Ukrainian Festival in September 2014, where they also released their debut CD album.


Each year, the choir continues to expand its repertoire and performance roster. They are excited to be on stage with Shumka and other dancers as part of the magic of Clara’s Dream!
