The Exemplary Band of the Russian Emergencies Ministry Successfully Opened this Music Weekend in Moscow

Go back

Saturday, June 8, the Exemplary Band of the Russian Emergencies Ministry has given start to this weekend intense music marathon in Moscow. Part of the Military Bands in the City Parks project, the ensemble staged their vibrant summer performance at 12 pm sharp on the main stage of the Olympic Village Park. All in all, this weekend in Moscow is going to welcome four concerts by the Russian military and law enforcement agencies.

Sticking to their artistry underlying principles backed with great professional skills, the Russian Emergencies Ministry Band has prepared an amazing program filling it with renowned classics and popular hits. With music and dancing, the concert was a huge success. Sparkling Rio Rita paso doble, heart-warming My country composition, lively We’ve been Taught to be Birds song got everyone moved and moving.

There were several surprises as well. Guests were stunned but delighted to hear Nirvana’s iconic Smells Like Teen Spirit song, a true hit of the Russia’s pop scene Malinovay Lada, and already a classic Hali-Gali song of the 1990s.

Musicians also performed Oh, Raise your Eyes and See composition, a very popular hit by Russian Bravo band.

And it was to the standing ovations and excited Bravo exclamations that the musicians finished their concert, making this summer weekend in Moscow parks even hotter, more vibrant and happier.

“It’s an honor for us to be part of this amazing project that brings live music back to Moscow’s parks and gardens. But it’s a great responsibility, as well. We all get very thrilled and excited every time we put a program together, as we want to treat our audiences to good music and make them happier”, told Anton Kozhevatov, leader of the Russian Emergencies Ministry Band.
With the ongoing support of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Organizing Committee of the Spasskaya Tower International Military Tattoo continues its efforts to revive one of the most charming traditions of the past, with military bands performing in parks and gardens, streets and alleys, and other iconic spots in Moscow and its environs.

Throughout the summer, enchanting wind melodies will engulf parks and gardens in Moscow and its environs, paving the way for the Sixteenth Spasskaya Tower International Military Tattoo that will unfold on Red Square from August 23 to September 1.
