On August 30th, 1997, the chorus singed in presence of the Saint Father in his summer residence in Castel Gondolfo.
I discovered The Ukrainian Children's Choir of Odessa by listening to their records when I was councilor for the culture in the Embassy of France beside the Saint See. Why not suggest the Saint Father to greet them during his trip in Castel Gondolfo What was finally done. The concert would last for 20 minutes, and will be going on, according to the Saint father's wish, for more than 40 minutes!! Coming from this beautiful country, Ukraine, this choral is fated to an international career as much by the quality of the rendering as by the choice of the repertory.

ODESSA, UKRAINE

Odessa is as it's told by its inhabitants – (more than 1 million) – is the Marseilles of Ukraine. Odessa is a harbour on the Black Sea, heroic city, it is also one of the best seaside resorts of Ukraine

Ukrainian National Children Chorus "Pearls of Odessa" from Odessa, Ukraine

thanks to a lucky alliance os steppe and maritime climates, a gentle sea, magnificent beaches, curative mud baths and an abundant vegetation. Founded in 1794, with the help of Italian and French architects, Odessa has preserved a lot of ancient monuments as architectural sets of classical epoch and an academic theatre of Opera and Ballet, an architectural wonder of the XIXth century, with very beautiful interiors and a perfect acoustic. We can also admire one of its curiosities, the Potemkine stairs, linking the city to the harbour.

Among the modern constructions, a new maritime station is undeniably praiseworthy. Odessa is proud of its glorious past. We can remember the achievement of the insurgent sailors of the armoured ship “Potemkine”. Today, Odessa is a centre of diverse industries. Its factories of naval repairing, the oil refinery and the jute (hessian) manufacture are even well-known beyond its frontiers. Odessa is also an important cultural centre. It owns 6 theaters, a philharmonic orchestra, a circus. The scene of the Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet has been trampled down by great artists like F. Chialiapine and L. Sobinov. Some rich collections are gathered in the paintings gallery and in the city's museums.

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY

Hello from Taiwan,
...I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing performance in Jhongli City, Taiwan on December 20th (2008). My husband bought me tickets for my birthday and surprised me with the show. I am of Ukrainian heritage and grew up in a small town in Canada with a very vibrant Ukrainian culture. It was so beautiful to hear the language and the amazing singing. It made us feel a lot more at home, and being away from Canada for two years and two Christmases, we really needed that comfort. I enjoyed every moment of the performance and my only complaint is that I would like the show to last forever! Thanks for coming to Taiwan and making a foreigner feel very much at home. I have attached a few pictures we took with some of the girls from the choir. You were all very talented and beautiful people!
