AmCham Supports Ukrainian Youth Choir Benefit
On December 8, AmCham, along with member companies Gløggkompagniet, Coca-Cola and Nemlig.com were pleased to support a fundraising event for Ukrainian Youth Choir “Shchedryk” from Kyiv, at Helligåndskirken in Copenhagen. The choir stopped in Copenhagen on their way back to Ukraine after performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Shchedryk is one of the most accoladed youth choirs in the world, winner of numerous grand prix at the leading musical and choir festivals, with the most recent being winning the first place with honors “Outstanding Success” in their category at XIII Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music festival (Austria), 2019. The choir continues to practice in Kyiv – amidst the war.
The event in Copenhagen was organized by Ukraine House Copenhagen – and many displaced Ukrainians who are living in the area were invited to participate for free, in order to bring joy to the Ukrainian mothers and children living in Copenhagen – so far from their homeland. The event proceeds from sales went to benefit the choir.
Thanks to those who supported this wonderful initiative.
