About the event

In the folk poetry of Ukraine, the ruta plant is a common folklore symbol of luck and wealth. In my work "The Song" based on the verses of the outstanding Ukrainian poetess Lesya Ukrainka, you'll hear it referenced as a symbol of youth. The not-yet-bloomed green ruta blossoms into a yellow flower that turns red for only a short time, on the night of Ivana Kupala, the summer solstice. The red ruta is a symbol of eternal and pure love, so the girl who finds it and picks it will be lovingly blessed.

Join us at San Francisco Conservatory of Music's new Bowes Center, an architectural award-winning music venue with unparalleled views of San Francisco Civic Center landmarks.

Performances at 2pm and 4pm
