What? Where? When?
“Quarantine is a temporary phenomenon, and music is eternal”, – with this message of this concert season, the vocal formation “Picardian Third” performs in the cities of Ukraine. In February, solo performances of “Picardians” took place in Ternopil, Rivne and Ivano-Frankivsk. The turn is for Kyiv! Concerts are held in compliance with the requirements of the Ministry of Health.
The new concert program of the Picardy Third, which combines all the best that the a cappella ensemble has created for more than 28 years of creativity. “Old Tram”, “Hermit”, “River Bank”, “You will get on a train”… Both the “Picardians” and their fans all over Ukraine missed the live performance of these and other songs. After all, last year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and quarantine, Tertsia had to cancel almost all planned concerts and tours.
– We haven’t seen each other at live concerts for a long time, so we sing both our best songs and those works that we don’t perform so often at solo performances, – says the artistic director of “Picardy Third” Volodymyr Yakymets. – So we prepare everything that people love and what is expected of us, which we have already missed during the quarantine. Finally, we sing together and exchange a good mood. After all, quarantine is a temporary phenomenon, and music is eternal!
The forced concert break in 2020 prompted “Tertsia” to make interesting experiments. So last year in June the a cappella group became the first in Lviv to dare to have a solo car concert on the roof. And the artists not only gathered a lot of listeners in cars, but also gave rise to a successful continuation of this new entertainment format. Shortly afterwards, the band gave a big online concert, gathering more than 100,000 views online. This performance of the band was broadcast simultaneously in Ukraine, USA, Canada and the UAE. And in August 2020, the “Picardians” were the opening of a new concert format in Kiev called “Distance”, which took place at the Art Factory Platform.
“Picardian Third” and studio work did not stop. Then the male sextet delighted his fans during the quarantine with a song novelty – the song “Farewell shooter”, which will be the official soundtrack to the new Ukrainian film “Another Franco”, the premiere of which is scheduled for August 2021 – the 30th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine :
