In 1991, Roxolana was performed in Toronto. In 1993, the Dnipro Choir celebrated 40 years of song by commissioning a choral-symphonic work, the oratorio «Sacred Dnipro» by Valeri Kikta and librettist Sophia Maydanska. The world premiere of this oratorio was in Edmonton with Leonid singing the bass part. In 1996, the Canadian Ukrainian Opera Association, together with the Dnipro Choir performed the oratorio «Sacred Dnipro» in Massey Hall in Toronto on April 28, 1996.

The executive producer of this effort was Toronto's Alla Shklar.
