Admission by Donation.
A Fundraiser for Ukraine Humanitarian Aid!

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble invites all to THE OKANAGAN UKRAINIAN FESTIVAL on Sunday, May 26th at 2:00pm. Come for an afternoon of Dance, Music, and Ukrainian Spirit at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

The focus of this year’s theme is Hope – NADIYA! A gentle reminder to the audience that the war rages on in Ukraine and that donations are vital for humanitarian aid.

This year, Sadok celebrates their Ukrainian Canadian heritage with special guests Soloist, Stephane Harcott of the Pokotillo Ukrainian Dancers of Kamloops, Dolyna Ukrainian Dancers of Kelowna, and Vita Nova Choral Ensemble under the direction of Tami Harker, along with a special performance by Sadok Alumni.

Vita Nova (meaning New Life) had it's first concert in June of 2021 with six families coming together to make music in Falkland and Salmon Arm. The choir soon grew and now performs two concerts a year (one in Dec/Jan and one in May/June) in Salmon Arm and Vernon. It consists of non-auditioned singers and also a Chamber String ensemble. Their main goal is to share the joy of making music to uplift those around them as well as themselves. They sing and dine together weekly and with a purpose of gathering socially and musically. Their repertoire consists of many styles of Choral music including classical, modern, jazz, and folk. Tami Harker, Director commented, “It is an honor to be asked to perform in this wonderful Ukrainian Festival with SADOK and we are excited to share our music of Hope.”
