The Color White – is purity and bright, this is a feeling of joy, lightness, enthusiasm. The color of a clean canvas, a wedding dress, this is the color of a smile and a good mood, a color that contains all the colors of the rainbow.
A few years ago Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra held a concert where listeners, artists and even the conductor were in white. White summer holiday! In the following year already it turned into a "White Festival", which was gladly joined by other collectives of Philharmonic Society. It's so nice that beautiful ideas become traditional.
Theater’s … sorry, the August pause of Novosibirsk Philharmonic lingered for a fortnight. It's no secret that the introduction after a long silence is always especially welcome, moreover since it's not someone who will break it, but Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra. A special charm to this introduction is given by an inimitable atmosphere, when the public is in white, the artists are too, and Maestro is whiter than ever! This is the dress code of the "White Festival". In other words, to fill your August with music, it's enough to change into white.
Are you fond of classics? Or maybe, of a romance? And even if you are a fan of jazz, the "White Festival" will pick up the key to everyone. Its programs were written very thoroughly.
