VICTORY OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT
by W. Stuart McDowell, Dayton Daily News.
“It is difficult to describe what happened last night here in this city they call the Jerusalem of Europe. Simply said, it was one of the greatest triumphs of the human spirit.
Tickets for the concert “United Through Music” went on sale only forty-eight hours before the event and was immediately sold out.
The concert United Through Music at the National Theatre conducted by two renowned Maestros Edin Dino Zonic and Neal Gittleman proved a crowning culmination of such an astonishing week of cultural encounters.”
