Spread New Music to the World

We are happy to announce the “Spread new music to the world” project – a collaborative artistic and cultural program between Russia and the United States with the support of the US Embassy in Moscow. The project intends to enrich the audience and features the novel American masterpiece “Requiem for the fallen” by Emmanuel Dubois. Driven by the mission to unite nations through the music and amazing experience of working together with top caliber artists from other countries, this endeavor will provide a unique opportunity for young professionals from art-oriented educational institutes in Russia to be part of the preparation process of the project, interact with the composer and established artists, and see orchestration processes as well as how music comes alive in all complexity and diversity.
