Greetings on opening of New Wave 2017 International Contest of Young Pop Music Performers

September 8, 2017

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the New Wave 2017 International Contest of Young Pop Music Performers.

The message reads, in part:

“This high-profile contest for young performers is a regular event in the world of contemporary music, which invariably attracts the attention of both recognised masters and talented beginners.

I am confident that this year’s New Wave will be remembered for its rich programme, striking performances and meetings with legendary representatives of the Russian and international pop music.

Let the lingering Olympic spirit of the city of Sochi support fair competition, strengthen everyone’s ambition to win and help them fully unfold their creative potential.”
