Instruments

Ukraine

Volodymyr Vikhrenko completed pedagogical studies, majoring in teaching music and singing. When he started teaching at school, it turned out they had no good quality instruments. This is why in 1990, he made his first sopilka (a type of wooden flute). Over 30 years of teaching, he has made over a thousand sopilkas that are used not only by the members of the music groups he leads but also by children and adults all over Ukraine. Currently, Volodymyr makes three types of sopilkas: diatonic, chromatic,  alto, tenor, and bass. Aside from wooden instruments, he also makes ceramic ocarinas. Master Vihkrenko presents his works at cultural and artistic events in Ukraine. He takes an active part in folk festivals.
