Truro School’s Choristers have come together to record a song for UNICEF and their emergency ‘Protect Children in Ukraine’ appeal.
The choristers and adult singers are learning a Ukrainian piece by a contemporary composer, Valentin Silvestrov – a beautiful Ave Maria. The piece will be sung in Ukrainian and the choristers are learning the language with support from a UCL professor.
The song will be recorded and filmed on Monday 21st of March and released on Youtube on Mothering Sunday (27th of March).
The project has the dual function of practical help (children helping children) and honouring the culture of Ukraine.
The project is receiving donations via Crowdfunder at: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/cornish-choristers-support-unicefs-ukraine-appeal
