Greetings on the opening of the first Sochi Classical Music Festival

August 20, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the first Sochi Classical Music Festival.

The message reads, in part:

“By bringing together both renowned Russian and international stars and talented young performers, the festival creates a special, inspiring atmosphere and brings the joy of true art to this southern resort town. Over the course of a few days, the audience will listen to the greatest pieces of classical musical, military and patriotic tunes and original compositions.

I am confident that your festival will become an annual event, leaving the audience with unforgettable memories. Cultural events on such a scale naturally help to consolidate society around enduring humanistic, spiritual, moral and patriotic values.”
