For the second time our charitable foundation together with ‘Premiera’ Creative Association named after L.Gatov and with support of Krasnodar Region Ministry of Culture holds the Grant Contest – Festival ‘PRIMAVERA’, helping musically gifted visually impaired children.
The main goal of the project is developing talents and giving opportunities for the professional growth to the prominent students of the only specialized musical school for the blind and visually impaired children in Russia.

‘The pupils of the Armavir Musical School for the visually impaired show the excellent level of preparation. I consider we ought to help them acquire self-confidence as well as show their parents what ‘special’ – in a good way – children they have.‘
The Gala Concert takes place at Armavir School on April, 10, and the best students to receive grants will be picked up at the perfomance. Students who got the best results over the last year take part in the performance. The selection board, including professional musicians, will be presented the characteristics of each participant and the information about their progress in music.

‘We are glad the project is going on. The past year and the musical contest of our friends – Armavir School – have proved the importance of the project for children and for us. The name of the project ‘Primavera’ means ‘blossom’, ‘first flowering’, which is quite symbolic. The contest gives the children an opportunity to bring their talents to light, and professional musicians open their hearts to the young heroes, who have to fight the invisible barriers, which we may see not, every day.’
The grants are awarded to children from 10 to 17 in two categories: singing performance and instrumental performance. The amount of money awarded to each winner is 5 000 rub.
Besides, this year the board will allot 2 children of especial achievements to receive extra support of 90 000 rub. for realizing the individual program of support. The total amount of money our fund is going to render on the project in 2017 -2018 is 630 000 rub.
