The Esoterics – THE SISTERS
Eric Banks, Artistic Director


Vocal ensemble The Esoterics presents the second concert of its 2022 season, THE SISTERS, featuring the sacred choral music of Ukrainian composer Bohdana Frolyak and her late sister Hanna Havrylets. Both are composers who were teaching in conservatories before this year's Russian invasion of Ukraine, in the cities of Lviv and Kyiv, respectively. Hanna, the elder sister, died tragically this year on the third day of the war, when she suffered an aneurysm and was unable to get medical attention. The younger sister, Bohdana, has recovered Hanna's scores and shared them with director Eric Banks along with her own works for this performance.

All of the proceeds from this concert will benefit humanitarian organizations in the Ukraine that have been selected by Bohdana. This will be an extraordinary event. Please join them in supporting the people of Ukraine!

Doors open at 7:30pm, and the Cathedral will be closed after the 5:30pm Mass for setup.

No tickets or reservations required; freewill donation taken at the door.
