Benefit Concert for Ukraine – Orchestra of the Canongait
May 8, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The choir of 90 voices from all over Scotland, all the soloists and orchestra and both the chorus director, Stephen Doughty, and the conductor of the concert Robert Dick, have offered their services for free and all the proceeds are in aid of Ukraine.
The main piece is, of course, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, which culminates in the instantly recognisable ‘Ode to Joy‘, which, as you know is also the European national anthem; the EU describes it as expressing the ideals of freedom, peace and solidarity which are even more relevant at this moment.
Duration: 90 mins
