ST. PETERSBURG, June 3 (Itar-Tass) — The 17th Music Olympus International Festival will end in St. Petersburg on Sunday.
Japanese conductor Yuki Kakiuchi, last year’s winner of an international contest in Besancon (France) will conduct the St. Petersburg Academic Philharmonic Orchestra named after Dmitry Shostakovich tonight.
Ana Maria Valderrama violin (Spain), Tori Huang piano (USA) and Olga Busuioc soprano (Republic of Moldova) will perform world classics.
More than 30 winners from 14 countries of Europe, Asia and America have demonstrated their skills and talent at the Music Olympus festival.
This year, the festival’s program included a series of charitable concerts, which young soloists gave in a children’s hospice, a house of war veterans and the Kresty detention facility. The festival’s artistic director Irina Nikitina said the initiative to organize charitable concerts would continue.
Several concert presentations of the Music Olympus festival will soon be held in the cities of Europe, Asia and the United States.
