The message reads, in part:
“Each year, your wonderful project gathers ever more creative momentum, and today it is rightfully considered a spectacular event in the cultural life of Siberia as well as the entire country. This success has become possible due to the joint enthusiastic work of the organisers and participants in the festival, and everyone who helps develop and promote it. And, of course, I greatly appreciate the work of Vadim Repin, the creator and artistic director of the forum.
I am quite sure that this year’s event will once again bring together talented performers, conductors and famous groups of musicians, and will become a great festive occasion for its guests and participants.”
