According to the organizers of the event, in 11 days at the resort will be held 10 concerts with different programmes. The number of programs – two unique projects: for the first time in Sochi will be performed literary-musical composition by the drama of Henrik Ibsen «peer Gynt» music by Edvard Grieg and reader – people’s artist of Russia Nikolai Burov. Also for the first time the orchestra will play on the roof RIOU, overlooking the sea and mountains.

«Every year the festival has some new ideas. Last year was launched a children’s project, this year we will give a super concert on the roof of the RIOU. The site would not accommodate many people, however, the concert will be memorable. We have the memory project, implemented by Leonard Gotovim on the tower of Akhun, who will live decades, if not centuries. We also expect our festival to such a level», — declared Vice-the mayor.
