FolkDC live concert in 5 cities and resources for schools

Live Concert

A unique simultaneous live concerts will be held in 5 European countries (UK, Turkey Finland, Romania and Spain) that will be linked on the Internet on 23 April 2013 (times in your area are available on the website). Your school can watch this exciting concert online see http://folkdc.eu/synchronousconcert/

The concert will feature school choirs at each venue singing the FolkDc songs, streamed over the Internet.

The kit consists of:
