Citing safety considerations amid the ongoing pandemic, organizers have postponed Kobzarska Sich bandura camp until 2022

Hryhory Kytasty Cleveland School of Bandura to host in-person instruction instead

DETROIT – An earlier story in the May 30 issue of The Weekly noted that the Kobzarska Sich leadership team and the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus planned to hold a summer bandura camp at the All Saints Camp of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the U.S.A. in Emlenton, Pa. However, safety and liability considerations associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic compelled the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus to make the painful decision to postpone Kobzarska Sich, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2019, until next year. However, for individuals who still want in-person bandura instruction this summer, the Hryhory Kytasty Cleveland School of Bandura, under the auspices of the St. Vladimir Orthodox Cathedral in Parma, Ohio, will hold a Bandura Summer Program July 26-August 7, 2021.
