The sixth edition of the benefit concert entitled We sing carols by tradition was held Wednesday, in Bucharest.
The Association of Students of Orthodox Theology organised Wednesday, 14 December, a benefit concert at the National Library of Romania. Hundreds of people responded to the invitation to listen carols and offer donations for children in distress.
The concert was attended by His Grace Timotei of Prahova, Assistant Bishop to the Archdiocese of Bucharest, clerics, and representatives of local and central authorities. Bishop Timotei delivered a word of blessing and addressed congratulations for organising this concert.
The first group to perform was the Byzantine Music Choir Tronos of the Patriarchal Cathedral, led by Archdeacon Protopsaltes Mihail Buca. Choirs Nicolae Lungu and Symbol of the Romanian Patriarchate followed.
The Association of Students of Orthodox Theology has been organising this type of concert since 2011, in order to bring hope to those who pass through difficult times.
