05 may 2021 Burgas Opera Singers Celebrate Europe Day Мusical works from the songs of European countries will be performed at the concert "Songs of Europe" on May 9

Exactly on May 9, Sunday, a date we celebrate as the Day of United Europe, the soloists of the State Opera - Burgas have prepared a rich concert program, including works from the vocal works of European composers, united under the title "Songs of Europe". The concert is from 7 pm in the hall of the Burgas Opera.

Europe Day, celebrated on 9 May each year, is dedicated to peace and unity in Europe. This date marks the anniversary of the historic Schuman Declaration. In a 1950 speech in Paris, Robert Schuman, the French foreign minister at the time, shared his idea of ​​a new form of political cooperation in Europe that would make war between European nations unthinkable. Only a year later, the contract for the establishment of such an institution was signed. Schuman's proposal is considered the beginning of this union of member states, which we now call the European Union. Every year, thousands of people take part in visits, debates, concerts, and other events dedicated to Europe Day, which aims to raise awareness of the Union.

Last year, 2020, due to the complete closure of cultural institutions, the Burgas Opera participated in the online program dedicated to Europe Day - "Burgas is Hope", an initiative of the Municipality of Burgas and Veselin Prenerov, Chairman of the Committee on Culture at the Municipal Council and executive director of RN Mediagroup.
