Reverse: there is a symbolic arrangement featuring a conventionalized fragment of a bandura with strings, to the right of which is a wreath, on top of which is the legend ПОВІЙ, ВІТРЕ, НА ВКРАЇНУ… (do blow, oh wind, into Ukraine...). The circular legends read УКРАЇНСЬКА КАПЕЛА БАНДУРИСТІВ ПІВНІЧНОЇ АМЕРИКИ ІМ. ТАРАСА ШЕВЧЕНКА, ВИТОКИ • КОБЗАРСЬКИЙ ХОР • 1918.(Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus of North America, origins, Kobzar Choir, 1918).
This commemorative coin is dedicated to the Kobzar Choir, a Ukrainian professional musical collective created in 1918 under the leadership of bandurist Vasyl Yemets. Both the National Honored Bandurist Chapel of Ukraine named after Hryhorii Maiboroda, and the Shevchenko Ukrainian Bandurist Chapel (based in Chicago, IL) are thought to have sprung from the Kobzar Choir. Kobzar art amazes the listener with its urge for distinctive self-sufficiency and its spirit of defiance. Through their activities, the two collectives promote the Ukrainian cultural heritage, which has won them the Taras Shevchenko National Award of Ukraine.
