For two years in a raw, the Ukrainian musicians have been opening the musical season at the Graz's Musikverein. This year, the event is open for the general public and free for all the interested.

The musicians created a festive spirit not only in the busy Musikverein Hall but also in the streets of Graz. During an impromptu flashmob on the main square of the city, the notes of the Ukrainian national anthem were organically incorporated into the European Union anthem, the famous "Ode to Joy" by Ludwig van Beethoven. Tourists and passers-by were intrigued. No doubts, there will be a lot of videos on the web about our musical adventures in Austria.
