Iryna Malaniuk, an internationally renowned opera singer, has been celebrated by the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Philharmonic since 2017, which proudly bears her name. Despite her acclaim, Malaniuk remains an underrated figure in Ukrainian music. Born in 1919 in Stanislaviv (now Ivano-Frankivsk) to a doctor's family, she harbored dreams of becoming a singer from a young age. Her journey to realizing this dream spanned a challenging 90 years, during which she survived World War II and traveled extensively to achieve success. Malaniuk gained recognition as a national artist in Austria and Germany. Yet, her heart remained in Stanislaviv, and she frequently organized concerts of Ukrainian songs abroad. In tribute to this legendary opera singer, her legacy is celebrated in her hometown, especially on her birthdays.
