The Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus' governing bodies uniquely work together in order to fulfill its mission. The Executive Board works with administrative issues while the Artistic Council concentrates on artistic planning. Together, they work in order to plan concert tours, recordings, workshops and other Chorus matters. The members of the Executive Board and Artistic Council are made up from the ensemble, and also volunteer their time in these efforts.
