— It is important for me that the Krasnoyarsk Regional Philharmonic becomes a point of attraction for the most diverse genres of performing arts. Such a festival is an excellent opportunity to diversify the Regional entertainment industry, to expand the locals' understanding of the diversity of cultures of our country. We are waiting for guests not only from Siberia, but also national collectives of Bashkiria, Buryatia and Yakutia. A feature of the festival will be the performance at the gala concert of a work specially written for the combined orchestra by our Siberian composer Vladimir Koshelev, – said Evgeny Stodushny, General Director of the Krasnoyarsk Philharmonic.
A rich business programme will take place within the framework of the festival. Guests of the festival will be able to attend workshops on making traditional musical instruments and learning how to play them, see an exhibition of national costumes and musical instruments.
