First Song Festival Concert Draws 90,000 ({{commentsTotal}})

The first concert of the Song and Dance Festival attracted over 80,000 listeners, with 7,500 singing in the choirs.

The choirs performed 25 songs from the previous song festivals, with only a song from the 1950 festival missing. The Soviet powers forced organizers of the 1950 Song Festival to include performances by the Soviet army.

The second, and last, concert will be held today, named “The Time to Touch,” with 14 new songs set to be performed.

100,000 people are expected to attend today's concert.
