The touring charity concert, Unbroken Ukraine, will be performed at the UPEI Performing Arts Centre in Charlottetown on July 27 at 6 pm and at Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside on July 28 at 7:30 pm.

The PEI Ukrainian community (Ukrainian Canadian Congress – PEI Branch), together with Ukrainian organizations from Halifax, Fredericton, Moncton, and Quebec City, and the Barvinok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble (Mississauga, ON), are touring Unbroken Ukraine across the Maritimes and Quebec in July.

Each concert will feature mesmerizing Ukrainian traditional dances by the Barvinok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and local artists and performers who have volunteered to share their talent in support of Ukraine. The goal is to raise $50,000 to purchase specialized equipment needed by the Unbroken Rehabilitation Centre in Lviv, Ukraine, to support war-affected Ukrainians, treat traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and aid with neurorehabilitation after concussions. All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Centre via the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.

For 55 years, Barvinok Ukrainian Dance School has taught traditional Ukrainian dance to generations of Ukrainians in Southern Ontario. Today, with over 400 students, the school is still committed to celebrating Ukrainian heritage, expanding Canada’s cultural diversity, and strengthening community identity.

Concert tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.ca (Charlottetown) or harbourfronttheatre.com (Summerside). Humanitarian aid can also be sent to Ukraine using the new PEI shipping service, Meest Canada (ca.meest.com).
