I welcome the organizers, participants and guests of the Eleventh Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival. Every year this event gathers some of the best military music and artistic groups from all over the world providing for the establishment of the intercultural dialogue.
As a matter of tradition the main events of the Festival are going to be held on Red Square. Meeting numerous requests of the audience this year the first ever daytime show is going to be held within the Festival’s program. Besides the Kremlin Equestrian School will present its grandiose show program that every year arouses enthusiastic interest of the public. The Spasskaya Tower for Children project will see its further development as well.
I want to point out that other big scale projects make part of the military music festival. Thus with the support of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and Government of Moscow the Military Bands in the Parks program is being realized in the spring/summer season. It is being carried out in the Alexander Garden and other 12 parks of Moscow giving the Muscovites and guests of the capital the opportunity to enjoy wind music performed by military bands that aim to acquaint their audience with popular compositions featuring a variety of genres from classical to rock.
Over all these years the Festival has been continuously developing, each year realizing greater and greater events, thus living up to its reputation of the world’s leading international military music project being among the top three of such events.
I wish the organizers, participants and guests of the Eleventh Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival new impressions, good mood and all the best.
