Music Holidays at the Astana Opera

The Year of Youth makes the tradition born at the Astana Opera House especially topical:  every year the talented Kazakhstani students, who are studying at the prestigious art institutes in Kazakhstan and abroad, including the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the Hochschule für Musik und Theatre Hamburg and the Moscow State Institute of Music named after A.G.Schnittke, etc. take part in the “Music Holidays” concert.

All the young artists are bright and accomplished musicians, who have won many prestigious international competitions. The performance of the Kazakhstani trumpeter Zhassulan ABDYKALYKOV, who has reached the prize-list of the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition in the “Brass Wind Instruments” category, held recently in Moscow, will bring a special joy to the audience.

The well-known Kazakhstani vocalist (baritone) Azat MALIK, a Master’s degree student of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and soloist of the Hungarian State Opera House will perform along with the instrumentalists.
