Chornobyl lecture at Oseredok

    April 26, 2007 is the 21st anniversary of the Chornobyl explosion. To commemorate this event, Drs. Robert Klymasz and Denis Hlynka presented Chornobyl in music: The view from North America. This presentation demonstrated how a new canon of musical works has arisen both in Ukraine and in North America dealing with the Chornobyl accident. This multimedia presentation illustrates how the Chornobyl theme has been picked up in North America and appears in a variety of musical genres such as the american folk/protest song, rock music, jazz, classical and liturgical. A surpisingly rich body of music has developed over the years emanating outside Ukraine as a component of mainstream popular musical production. This lecture is part of an ongoing research project of the Centre's research cluster dealing with Ukrainian and Ukrainian Canadian Music. The project is funded in part by the Imperial Oil Academy, University of Manitoba.
