On Sunday, May 5, Yummy Market proudly supported M. Turetsky Choir and SOPRANO’s first-time concert in Canada, held at Mel Lastman Square (5100 Yonge St.) in Toronto. Free admission to the concert drew crowds of people, who filled all seating and standing areas of the square’s 20,000 sq. ft. of open space. Some people were signing out loud, some were humming along to familiar tunes. The concert brought the Russian-speaking community together for a day of cultural reconnection through music.
With its UNITY SONGS program, the group uses music to send messages of peace and love. These songs, written in the years of World War II and sung in different languages (Russian, English, Italian, French, Chinese, etc.), remind us of what’s important: love, honor, friendship, devotion and peace.
This spring, the group will bring the UNITY SONGS program for the first time to Rome, Washington, Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, Beijing and Qingdao; it will be returning to Berlin, Vienna, Paris, New York, Moscow and Minsk.
