all the children participating in the choir and I, Georgi Ivanov, the choir-master of "Songbird" Children’s folk choir at „Hristo Botev-1897” Community center of the town of Pazardzhik appeal to you for a great help!
We are starting the new working period without the beautiful and colourful national costumes, which we were given and allowed to use by the Municipal Children Center, and in whose building we were able to rehearse till the middle of August, 2015. We are very happy that afterwards we are supported by at „Hristo Botev-1897” Community center, whose management offered us a wonderful and comfortable hall to rehearse.
Children’s Folk Choir „Songbird” has been created on 1 October 2009. In the children’s choir participates 52 children – boys and girls between the ages of 4 – 17. The singers are divided in two groups – concert and preparatory.
Choirmaster of the choir is George Ivanov – a graduate of the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts – Plovdiv with the subjects Ethnomusicology, Conducting and Music Education.
The folk songs are conformed to the age of the singers and cover all of Bulgarians musical-folk dialects. The majority of the songs are taken from the area of the town of Pazardzhik, Bulgaria.
We are willing to take part in all the cultural events in our town, in our country and even abroad. We have received a lot of invitations to attend concerts and competitions, that we are not able to do because we don't have the national costumes needed for this purpose. In order to have our costumes again, to make the existence of the choir possible, to keep on preserving and supporting Bulgarian folklore, to see the happy shine on children's faces again, to be proud with our town and our country, we address our request for financial help to everyone who can help.
The Bulgarian national folk costumes are very expensive and we cannot afford them without YOUR financial help and support.
To guarantee you the transparency of spending the donated money, we will share with you the monthly statements and the purchase invoices for folk costumes by firms via our Facebook profile.
Gratefully and with my best wishes
From Georgi Ivanov- choir-master
and all the choir members
