MOSCOW, October 6 (Itar-Tass) - A new music action called “Night Music 2013” has been held in Moscow.
“The number of people willing to go to concerts significantly exceeded the number of vacant seats in concert halls,” Yekaterina Kalachikova, the project’s curator, told Itar-Tass. “Naturally, we could have predicted a sold-out for the concerts of Igor Butman and Anton Baganov. But performances by young and little known musicians also aroused great public interest.
“Not a single concert was cancelled. Everything went very well. All Moscow neighbourhoods took part in the action. The focus was made on the most distant districts,” Kalachikova went on to say. All the artists believe that the Night of Music should be held annually.
The Moscow action initiated by the culture department of the Moscow government has no world analogues.
“The Russian Ministry of Culture had prepared proposals to turn the action into a nationwide event next year,” Kalachikova said.
“The Night of Music was timed to coincide with the International Day of Music traditionally marked on October 1. The organizers have chosen a day off as the date for the concerts to enable more listeners to attend concerts.
The actions took place at 150 floors. All the concerts were free.
