About the show
American Christmas in Kyiv!
On December 22 and 23, 2023, the October Palace will host a unique holiday event "American Christmas made in Ukraine". Almost all world-famous Christmas hits were written by composers who were born in Ukraine or have Ukrainian descent - but no one knows about it! The composers or their parents were born in Ukraine and later emigrated to the United States, where the Christmas hits were written:
“Let it Snow”
“Chestnuts Burning” (Mary Christmas to You)
And many, many others! Do we know that the authors of these songs are Ukrainian?
Concert “American Christmas made in Ukraine”
The poet Pavlo Korobchuk and the band The Velvet Sun have collected fifteen Christmas stories about the creation of world-famous Christmas hits. With the crackling of the fire and the smell of cinnamon, the musicians and the poet will tell you how love for the country of childhood, their native Ukraine, runs through each composition. Pavlo will not only tell the story of the composers, but will even read excerpts from interviews where the songwriters recall their childhood, the stories of their grandparents about the most beautiful and dear Ukrainian Christmas. Visit an interesting event filled with Christmas songs and mood, buy tickets on the website or at the box office.
We wish you a Merry Christmas!
