SAN DIEGO — Music fills Balboa Park in honor of Ukraine.
Audiences enjoyed the show at the Spreckles Organ Pavilion on Saturday evening with a live concert dedicated to helping refugees.
Massive crowds showed up and showed up to listen to music and support a good cause on Saturday night – dreamers, artists and doers came together to take action for Ukraine.
“We wanted to do something and it’s really hard to know what to do,” said spectator Leslie Johnson Leech. “We’ve come a long way every time we watch it on TV, we’re just heartbroken and then we heard it was going to happen and so we thought we’d brave the crowd tonight and go out and do this. that we can and donate.”
Donations raised at the Spreckles Organ Society concert will be used to provide humanitarian aid to Ukraine through Operation USA.
“If governments see the support that we citizens are showing with events like this or speaking out on the streets in Europe, people in governments are going to give more, they are going to support more,” says the civic organist of San Diego Ral Prieto Ramirez.
The concert is titled “A Musical Tribute to Peace, Dignity and Democracy”.
“Music brings out the best in human beings,” says Ramirez. “It brings our emotions. It’s just communication without words. It’s heart to heart.”
Hearts touched in unison with performances of classic rock from guest vocalists and the Organ Pavilion Rock Band – songs that say no matter how far these San Diegan people are with Ukraine.
“We pray for them,” says Johnson Leech. “We are thinking of them. Our hearts are with them and we send them love.
The Spreckels Organ Pavilion hosts weekly concerts on Sundays at 2 p.m. and each concert will begin with the national anthem of Ukraine.
