On Saturday, December 16, 2023, the voices of the first Romanian choir made up of members of the Romanian community in London and its surroundings were heard in Trafalgar Square.

Celebrating Romanian customs and traditions in one of London's most famous squares, the epicenter of the Christmas celebration brought together hundreds of people from the British metropolis.

The Romanian Cultural Institute from London joined the initiative of the Roconect Association in support of this gesture that combines the local beauty of the holidays with Romanian traditions. The choir, made up of over 50 singers, adults and children, presented to the London audience the most beautiful traditional carols from our country and a crampei from the exceptional diversity of the traditional port from different ethnographic areas.

Cornelius Orășanu, pianist and conductor at the Allegretto Music Academy in London, selected and harmonized the voices of the volunteers who performed more than 12 carols, including: Here, come the colliders, The rising star, Three Shepherds, Oh, beautiful fir! and Lord-Lord let us exalt.

The event was carried out with the support of the London City Hall, which responded enthusiastically, allocating a generous space to the group of Romanian carolers.
