Concert in Support of Ukraine’s Arrival at Shell Theater –

A concert in support of Ukraine is coming to the Shell Theatre.

Carol Slukynski of Fort Saskatchewan is part of an organizing committee for Hello Ukraine, a showcase of Ukrainian songs and dances in support of Ukraine. A similar concert in St. Albert saw tickets sell out within 25 minutes.

“They crashed the system and ended up offering a virtual option, which also sold hundreds of tickets. With that, they raised over $100,000, Slukynski said.

The concert will include a series of performances, with renowned Ukrainian dance companies, Shumka, Cheremosh, Volya, Viter, Dunai and Vohon coming together to raise funds and celebrate Ukrainian culture. The Ukrainian Verkhovya Choir also joins the performance.

“We are going to present more than 150, up to 200 artists who travel and perform all over the world. [They’re] come to our community in solidarity with our efforts.

Hello Ukraine will take place on June 26 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 12 at noon. People can reserve tickets at the Shell Theater box office or online at Tickets can also be purchased through at 1-888-655-9090 or online here.
