II Festival "Novorossiysk Chimes” Held With CPC Support

5.pngOn August 19, 2023, Novorossiysk Forum Square hosted the II classical music festival - "Novorossiysk Chimes". A large-scale five-hour gala concert on the Black Sea coast was held with the support of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium and in cooperation with the Autonomous Non-Profit Organization "Black Sea Symphony Orchestra".  Alexey Batura, Deputy Minister of Culture of Krasnodar Krai, Novorossiysk Municipality Head Andrey Kravchenko, Ekaterina Semchenko, CPC-R Chief Representative, Regional Authority Relations, and Festival Artistic Director Yulia Kosyakova welcomed the Festival participants and guests.

The Novorossiysk Chimes sound in the open air of the hero-city for the second year, which suggests the birth of a new good tradition. This year, over 250 performers participated in the Festival, including the full Black Sea Symphony Orchestra conducted by Konstantin Milyoshkin and Alexei Pugachyov. Moscow violinists Sergei Pospelov and Tatiana Breslavskaya, accordionist Maxim Fyodorov, opera singers Tatiana Yeremina (Krasnodar) and Kirill Chursin (Rostov-on-Don) were the soloists. Famous symphonic works by Gioacchino Rossini, Edvard Grieg, Pal Abraham, Imre Kalman, Aram Khachaturian, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Dmitry Shostakovich and other famous composers, music from movies, opera arias and scenes from ballets, waltzes and tangos - about 50 compositions in total - were performed. The repertoire was selected taking into account the significant dates celebrated by Novorossiysk this year - the 185th anniversary of the founding of Novorossiysk, the 80th anniversary of the city's liberation from Nazi invaders, and the 50th anniversary of the awarding of the honorary title "Hero-City" to Novorossiysk.4.png

Like last year, the Novorossiysk Chimes used collapsible, quick-erecting grandstands and a stage complex purchased for the city in 2021 by the Caspian Pipeline Consortium. Thanks to this, all Festival guests - and there were about 5 thousands of them - were comfortable, could see and hear well. Those who had no opportunity of attending the Forum Square in Novorossiysk that evening could watch the Festival on-line broadcast.

Support to culture and art is one of the leading aspects of CPC charity activity in the host regions. The Consortium’s charity projects and social programs in the hero-city are being implemented under the Cooperation Agreement with the Municipality signed in 2022 by CPC General Director Nikolay Gorban and Novorossiysk Mayor Andrey Kravchenko. The collaboration will soon continue with the annual "CPC to First Graders" project, followed by other traditional events.
