SOCHI, March 15, 17:35 /ITAR-TASS/. World renowned tenor Jose Carreras arrived in Sochi on Saturday, March 15, to take part in the Winter Paralympics cultural programme.
He will perform on March 16 with visually impaired children and then will sign the Paralympic Anthem together with Diana Gurtskaya and Nafset Chenib at the Games’ closing ceremony on the same day.
“It’s a great honour and great gift for me to perform at the Paralympic Games. I did this before at the Summer Olympics and Paralympics in Barcelona in 1992. For me personally projects like this are an opportunity to do something for the athletes and people with disabilities,” Carreras said.
