THE LEVADA & ORION UKRAINIAN CHOIRS (YMA) TORONTO
The Ukrainian Youth Ensembles Corp (YMA) TORONTO, consisting of the Levada Women's Choir, Orion Men's Choir, and Vanguard Concert/Marching Band, were founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1985 under the musical direction of the late Maestro Vasyl Kardash. Since their inception, Reverend Ivan Trush has been the Spiritual Advisor of this musical organization.
(YMA) TORONTO’s music performances and presentations promote aesthetic education and diversity by uniting youth, adults, choristers, musicians, young soloists and Canadian composers. We introduce a unique element of Ukrainian culture into the multi-cultural mosaic of Canada.
