We try to make it easy and pleasant for the citizens to support homeless people during any season therefore decided to repeat a concert of classical music in summer as well", – Anastasia Sadovnikova, the coordinator of the projects of the charitable organization "Nochlezhka" speaks.
"We hope that masterpieces of classical music are going to sound at a concert, will remind each viewer of one of the main universal values – compassion. We daily face social problems: someone tries not to notice them, someone grieves and worries, trying to help. Fortunately, in the last decade the feeling of social responsibility even more often awakes in people", – Mikhail Golikov, the chief conductor, the art director of an orchestra "Taurian" speaks.
