Stage II of Jas Tolqyn Young Talent Contest Is Over

JT1.jpgA gala concert summing up Stage II of Jas tolqyn contest was held in Aktau on 8 June. This contest of young talents is taking place for the fourth year with CPC-K’s support. The project is aimed at supporting gifted children and adolescents living in Atyrau, Aktobe, Mangystau and Western Kazakhstan Oblasts of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The contest objective is to preserve and revive national culture and traditions.
“Each year, the Jas tolqyn contest opens its doors to young talents of the Western Region”, noted Kairgeldy Kabyldin, CPC-K Deputy General Director, Republic of Kazakhstan Government Relations. - This is one of our most ambitious charitable cultural projects. It is very pleasing that the recognition of our contest is growing, as well as the number of participants and the level of their preparation”.
About 500 applications in total from both individual performers and creative teams were submitted to the 2023 contest. The total number of participants was 1,298 persons. For two days, contest participants competed in the categories of "choreography", "vocal", "instrumental genre", "folk music" and "lyrics". By tradition, after the competitive performances, honored workers of culture of Kazakhstan, people's artists, teachers of the Kazakh National University of Arts conducted master classes for the participants. At the master classes, young talents received valuable advice on acting and stage plastics. 
“For our children, "Jas tolqyn" is a whole event, for which they carefully prepare: they think up scenic images, sew costumes and rehearse a lot," said Nurlan Ismailov, the chairman of the jury of the "Jas tolqyn" contest. - Each of them has a talent, but not each has an opportunity of developing it. We highly appreciate CPC’s support to the young contestants. Children participated in auditions and master classes with sincere enthusiasm, each of them received an unforgettable experience and useful skills. Everyone tried very hard at the concert and did their utmost”.JT2.jpg
