Akron, OH -  The "Kosovo" Mens Choir of northeastern Ohio  held their fourth annual Kafana Nite fundraiser on Saturday, October 30, 2004 at the St. Archangel Michael Serbian Church Hall in Akron, Ohio.  Special guest choir "Czar Lazar", the mens choir of greater Pittsburgh, took part in this fundraiser.  After both choirs performed separately they came together for the moving finale, singing "O Lord Save Thy People", under the direction of special guest Michael Hutnik, who arranged this troparion for a male choir.  

Towards the end of the program, the choir  members surprised their director, Dr. Stevan Zivic, with a special plaque in recognition of his ten year dedication to this choir.  Also, the members were very gracious to Mr. Steve Popovic who, on the occasion of their tenth anniversary, donated $1,000 to the choir.  Following  the program musical guests "Junaci" of Pittsburgh, entertained the crowd until late that evening.

The members of the "Kosovo" choir are thankful to all the many people who came out to support their cause.
