On February 4 a seminar for young art managers opens the work of the cultural and educational project TONALi-Tour timed to the VI Trans-Siberian Art Festival.Trans-Siberian TONALi Tour was organized jointly with the German national competition TONALi. The project is designed for high school students from regular schools and provides students with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves into the backstage world of a classical concert, its organization and conducting. TONALi Tour erases the boundaries of communication between the artist and the public, helping to overcome prejudice to the world of classical music, which is very important for a young audience.
