They wanted to study a concert stage in the region — Aliona Bolkvadze, deputy director of Novosibirsk Philharmonic Society for International Affairs said, — We were afraid to bring the orchestra far into the region, so as soon as possible a concert in Berdsk was organized on the stage of PC «Rodina.» These musicians travel a lot, so such an extreme schedule for them is no more than a working moment.»

"This concert is a great event for the citizens of Berdsk — Oksana Gerasimchuk, head of the department of concert activity of Novosibirsk Philharmonic Society in Novosibirsk region said, — Performances in the region of foreign stars invited to philharmonic international festivals are rare and happy exceptions, and we are pleased that the initiative of making concert on December 6 came from the musicians of “Sinfonia Rotterdam”. Concert on the stage of the Palace of Culture «Rodina» will start on December 6 at 18 o’clock.

The orchestra «Sinfonia Rotterdam» and Carel Kraayenhof will also perform on 7 December at the Chamber Philharmonic Hall, and on 8 December — on the stage of the Palace of scientists of SB RAS.

The Chamber Orchestra «Sinfonia Rotterdam» is one of the youngest teams of the Netherlands. «They burst into the European music stage five years ago and they have earned a reputation as one of the most mobile and bright ensembles, — said Aliona Bolkvadze, — With the incredible competition between the symphony and chamber orchestras in Europe, this team reached a meaningful status, received state financing, they have their season ticket, regular concerts at the Concertgebouw — one of the best halls of the world. In addition, the concerts of «Sinfonia Rotterdam» are included in the official program of the Year of the Netherlands in Russia, which is scheduled for 2013.
