This morning, Icelandic singers organized a solidary concert in support of Ukraine in front of the Russian Consulate in Reykjavík.
Among the event’s organizers were Hallveig Rúnarsdóttir, the chamber choir Cantoque Ensemble, Sönghátíðin from Hafnarborg and a singer Guðrún Jóhanna Ólafsdóttir. She said it’s important to unite and show solidarity even if you can’t sing: “Music is the international language that can touch everyone, even though we do not necessarily understand the words.”
The concert has included a new arrangement by Magnús Ragnarsson, a Ukrainian folk song, Maístjarnan by Jón Ásgeirsson and Þorkel Sigurbjörnsson’s songs.
