[UKRAINIAN TEXT]  [MEMBERSHIP]  [ADDRESS/MAP]  [PERFORMERS]

The Music and Art Center of Greene County, the first and oldest classical music summer concert series in the region, offers an opportunity to hear outstanding musicians perform in the architecturally unique Grazhda hall. An integral part of the Ukrainian cultural complex built around St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church, the Grazhda is situated in the beautiful natural setting of the Catskills in the Hunter area, a region that has experienced a remarkable growth in cultural awareness and new opportunities.

Grazhda

The Grazhda, which forms part of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church and Cultural Center, serves as the venue for the classical music concert series presented by the Music and Art Center of Greene County in July and August. An architectural landmark in the region, built in a traditional style typical of the Carpathian region in Ukraine, the complex is a focal point for a well-established Ukrainian summer community and draws tourists from near and far.

Established in 1983 by composer and musicologist Dr. Ihor Sonevytsky, the Music and Art Center has become an established presence in the region and on the Ukrainian cultural scene in general.

Among eminent artists who have performed at the Grazhda in the past were Metropolitan Opera bass Paul Plishka, pianist Alexander Slobodyanik, violinist Oleh Krysa, composer Myroslav Skoryk, Kyiv Opera tenor Anatoliy Solovyanenko and soprano Maria Stefiuk, as well as the Leontovych String Quartet.

General information - performance schedules, changes and updates, as well as detailed directions and membership information - is available online at: www.grazhdamusicandart.org/about.html. Information is also available by calling 518-989-6479 (July 1 - September 4). Inquiries may be addressed by e-mail to: info@grazhdamusicandart.org.

Concerts are held at the Grazhda on Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., with tickets available at the door.

The Grazhda is located on Rt. 23A in Jewett, N.Y., 5 miles west of the town of Hunter and 2 miles east of Lexington.

Music and Art Center of Greene County is supported by funding from the Greene County Council on the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, Self Reliance New York Federal Credit Union, members and private donations.
