Nearly 200 million crowns raised through Ukraine support concert in Prague
This week’s Sunday Music Show is dedicated to the Concert for those affected by Russia’s attack on Ukraine, which took place on Wenceslas Square this Monday and was organised by Czech Television. Various leading Czech bands and signers, including Mirai, Chinaski, Mig 21, Pražský výběr, Marie Rottrová and Tomáš Klus, sang during the fundraiser, which also featured a performance by the Czech Philharmonic orchestra. Many of the songs also had symbolic meaning. For example, Michal Hrůza sang Karel Kryl’s famous 1968 song Bratříčku, zavírej vrátka (Close the Gate, Little Brother). A total of CZK 160 million was raised during the event. The money will be sent by Czech Television to People in Need’s SOS Ukraine charity fund.
