On 10 September MRP premiered its project “Children’s Region Philharmonic” at Tchaikovsky State Museum in Klin. Philharmonic programs for children featuring prominent musicians and multi-genre artists will be held in art schools across Moscow region throughout the year.
The recital of “The Four Seasons” launched the project. Vivaldi’s and Tchaikovsky's works of the same name were presented by Instrumental Capella, Dmitry Borodin (violin) and Oleg Kalagurov (piano) in a new, unusual adaptation accompanied by pantomime and video art conducted by Sergey Inkov and directed by Olesya Nevmerzhitskaya.
The program also featured Mandragora Children’s Choir (conductor – Russia’s Honored Culture Worker Elena Umanskaya) and students of Tchaikovsky children’s art school in Klin Matvey Altukhov and Alexei Nagorny.
Welcome speeches were made by First Deputy Culture Minister of Moscow region A. Murashov, Deputy Chief of Staff of Klin district N. Timofeyeva, and the project’s leader, People’s Artist of Russia, MRP’s artistic director M. Dunayevsky.
The upcoming recitals in 2016 will be held in Korolyov, Balashikha, and Serpukhov.
