Russian mega choir performs for Day of Russia
Held at noon on Thursday, the concert was organized by Alla Lvtvyn, the chair of the Sverdlovsk branch of the All-Russian Choral society. More than 70 conductors helped lead the choir, which was comprised of grade school children, university students, professional singers and amateur singers, Oblgazeta reports.
"A chorus is when people feel each other's shoulder," Lvtvyn said, according to Oblgazeta. "Your voice is part of a huge force. It's no coincidence in the Sverdlovsk region [that there is a] strong choral tradition."
The concert consisted of patriotic, popular and traditional song selections, including the Russian national anthem, Arkady Ostrovsky's "Let There Always Be Sunshine," Eugene Rodygina's "Ural Ryabinushka" and "Sverdlovsk Waltz."
"This is also a native Russian tradition when the chorus enters the square and people are drawn, sing along, feel part of a powerful force," Lvtvyn said, according to Oblgazeta. "Nothing dies in history. All is collected and returned."
