In a powerful gesture of solidarity and compassion for the people of Ukraine impacted by Russia’s unprovoked invasion, Pihcintu, a refugee girls’ chorus, in concert with members of the Portland Symphony Orchestra and the Magic of Christmas Chorus based in Portland, Maine and the Mykhailo Verykivsky Kids’ Artschool from Irpin, Ukraine have produced and released a music video for “Carol of the Bells”, to support the children of Ukraine. The ArtSchool is supported by United Help Ukraine.
“Carol of the Bells” is a beloved Christmas carol, based on the traditional Ukrainian folk song that celebrates the season of rebirth and anticipation of a prosperous New Year.
The song and the video carry a powerful message of empathy, unity and resilience, conveyed by the beautiful voices of young singers from Ukraine and the US, whose families had lived through the horrors of war, being displaced from their homes and the need to experience the basics of life. The music video brings attention to a devastation caused by the war and supports humanitarian relief efforts organized by United Help Ukraine.
