Response from Ukrainian dance groups Sopilka and Veselka

Hi Andrey,

Thank you so much for your kind words. We really enjoyed performing for you. It was a great venue and was certainly well attended when our dancers performed. It was wonderful for our children to have such a great opportunity to perform in public. Thank you.

Its great to see this beautiful multicultural event and we look forward to seeing you on June 15th. Please provide us with the details as soon as you are able.

I know that it takes a lot of work to organize such large events, so congratulations to you and your organizers for all your hard work. By working together and sharing our beautiful cultures, we can hopefully continue to grow and continue to exist for many generations yet to come.

Take care, Debbie Karras
