Dana Mazhitova is the winner of the New Wave contest and the international festival CPC to Talented Children that were organized by the Consortium. Dana was selected to take part in the first stage of the Voice of Kazakhstan TV-contest.
The New Wave is part of the international project entitled CPC to Talented Children that has been conducted for over 20 years in the Russian regions of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium presence. In 2019, a decision was made to run the contest in Kazakhstan, so that gifted children living in the Atyrau, Aktobe, Mangistau and West Kazakhstan regions could participate.
The 18-year old Dana is a student of the music arts department at Zhurgenov Kazakh National Academy of Arts, specializing in pop singing. Dana’s family has always supported artistic initiatives. At the age of three, Dana won her first prize at Igolek kids festival.
The New Wave young talents contest has become a first big step towards stage performance for Dana. Ms. Mazhitova attended workshops delivered by the best professors in the country to learn professional singing and acting skills. After winning a grand prix in singing, Dana was admitted to take part in the 2019 CPC to Talented Children international festival.
In 2019, over 10,000 talented kids and teenagers took part in the CPC to Talented Children festival, presenting about 3,000 creative performances in a number of nominations. Performances of the contest participants were evaluated by members of creative community, merited artists of Russia and Kazakhstan, teachers, laureates of international competitions. Dana Mazhitova won the first prize in the ‘singing’ nomination.
“Winning these two music contents has given me a chance to perform on stage and launched my professional artistic performance’, Dana commented.
Due to the pandemic, organizational arrangements of the New Wave and CPC to Talented Children had to be adjusted. In 2020 and 2021, the contests were conducted online. The organizers remain hopeful that in the following year, the contests will be able to admit talented children and teenagers, and feature some promising performances.
