The ballroom lit up with a variety of hand-held lights during the singing of "Ne Spy Moia Ridna Zemlia", followed by a standing ovation.

DUMKA Welcomed Warmly at its First Saturday Evening Concert Appearance at Soyuzivka's Ukrainian Festival

As in many previous years the Dumka Chorus closed out the major events of the festival with a full concert at Veselka on Sunday. The well-received concert was all-Ukrainian, including many new musical numbers. But new for this year was the chorus' appearance at the beginning of the main Saturday evening outdoor concert. The chorus presented the welcoming and enthusiastic crowd a three-song program.
