A commemorative coin dedicated to the collective that has formed powerful choral traditions and its own unique performing style. The team traditionally presents Ukrainian vocal and choral art during numerous touring tours. Created in 1919 as the Derzhavna Ukrainian Mandrivna Kapela (the name “Dumka” is derived from the initial letters of the original title), it represents a unique Slavic version of the interpretation of Western European classics, full of lyricism, the beauty of timbres, and dynamism of the palette. Now the chapel’s repertoire consists of music for “a cappella” choirs (folk song processing, Western European music), vocal and symphonic music (I. Bach, L. Beethoven, J. Verdi), as well as works by modern Ukrainian composers (E. Stankovych, V. .Silvestrov, L. Dychko, M. Skorik).
