Choir of the Earth: Help Spread the Music of the Shchedryk Children’s Choir

A MESSAGE FROM CHOIR OF THE EARTH:

There are times in life when we can really make a difference.

This is one of those times.

There is an internationally renowned Children’s Choir in Kyiv and they need our help. Not financially – musically.

They recorded two pieces of music just before the war in Ukraine and they sent these pieces last week to Saul Zaks, who taught us MISATANGO. Saul immediately called us to see if we can help to spread this beautiful music to the world. On your behalf, I said we would do everything within our power to help.

Please read our webpage, listen to the two tracks and pass on the link to as many people as you can.

We can help by spreading their music across the globe and making a difference.

Always here when you need us,
