The Festival is eight years old this year, and for the past three years has been an international event, with adults and young people participating from 12 countries. The project cannot be made possible without the Patron of the Festival, N.A. of Russia Sergey Zakharov. With his help the Festival has gone from strength to strength every year. Sergey Georgievich not only helps to select the best finalists himself, he also has the acumen and leadership to keep the Festival on the right tracks.

This charity project provides an opportunity for our talented compatriots living in Europe, Russia and other countries to prove themselves in the leading musical venues of London, to believe in their own strengths, and also to meet well-known Russian musicians.
