Tonight was the first rehearsal for the Ukrainian musicians together with the American musicians who will be working at the day camp this week. I actually had to snap this picture when the doorbell rang and in walked the Americans — the skies had just opened and dumped bucketloads of rain as they were walking the two blocks from the metro to our flat.
What a delight to hear the voices and instruments! Within minutes they were harmonizing, and the rich tones of the violin added depth to the sound.
A little work on lyrics — in English, Russian and Ukrainian — and the crew all went their separate ways.
We meet tomorrow morning at 9:00 to board the bus to Zdvizhivka…and then the real fun begins!
