Ukrainian War Requiem

Saturday, April 13th

World Premiere Performance

Edmonton – Men’s Ensemble is honoured to present the world premiere of Ukrainian War Requiem by two-time Grammy nominee Benedict Sheehan.

Following the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the Axios Men’s Ensemble commissioned composer and two-time Grammy Award nominee, Benedict Sheehan, to compose a Requiem to honour the countless victims who have lost their lives in this tragic war. The concert will feature Axios Men’s Ensemble, Pro Coro Canada, soloists from across North America and Ukraine and will be conducted by Michael Zaugg.

Two-time GRAMMY® nominee and American Prize-winner Benedict Sheehan has been called “a choral conductor and composer to watch in the 21st century” (ConcertoNet) and “a remarkable musician”. Sheehan’s music has been performed by many of today’s leading choral ensembles, including a 2022 collaboration with Austin’s GRAMMY® Award-winning Conspirare on a setting of the African-American manifesto Credo by W.E.B. DuBois, and the UK premiere of A Christmas Carol by the BBC Singers at the Barbican in London.
Tickets for Ukrainian War Requiem are $40 (General admission), $25 (Student) and $10 (12 and under), and available at
