About the Concert

The program of the concert “Flowers and jewelry” that is taking place the day before the main spring holiday is a symbolic dedication to the beautiful half of humanity. At all times, these have been traditional gifts to ladies as a sign of love and admiration. That is why all the musical pieces to be performed this evening will be connected with flowers and jewelry in one way or another. Lyrical songs, exquisite romances, vivid pop numbers and ingenious, sparkling instrumental miniatures – all these musical pieces will be tied together into a luxurious colorful bouquet. This abundance of chamber repertoire pearls will certainly create the spring festive mood that will become a truly wonderful gift for the audience.
