Posted by grhomeboy in Arts Events Cyprus, Music Life Classical.

The Pharos Trust, together with London based company Ensemble Productions Ltd have jointly initiated a Cyprus-Russian Gala concert under the patronage of Cyprus’ First Lady, Mrs Fotini Papadopoulou.

The event will not only promote relations between the two countries but also contribute to the Cyprus-based Radiomarathon Foundation, the charity for Children with Special Needs which during its latest drive raised the record amount of £1.8 million.

The evening will acknowledge the significant contribution of resident Russian citizens to Cypriot society and equally the many Cypriot companies who have shown great interest and commitment to investing in Russia.

The Gala evening, at the Presidential Palace on September 7, will bring together an unrivalled list of business and political leaders, media and celebrities as well as personalities from the international arts world, making it a unique networking opportunity. In addition to a marvellous selection of food, the Pharos Trust, renowned for bringing top quality artists to the island, will again offer performances of internationally acclaimed musicians in an exclusive open-air concert in the Presidential Gardens.

The programme will begin with the Moscow Virtuosi under the direction of their founder, violinist Vladimir Spivakov. Following the 80-minute concert, guests will have dinner while being entertained by the Turetsky Choir, Russian folk-rock diva Pelageya and Kyprogeneia till the early hours of the morning.

The Pharos Trust will be also hosting an exhibition of Russian contemporary artists at the Pharos Centre for Contemporary Art prior to the Gala evening as well as a series of lectures.

The tickets are £70 per person and are available from the Pharos Trust at www.thepharostrust.org or by emailing the Ensemble Productions at admin@ensembleproductions.co.uk or by telephoning the Radiomarathon Offices at 22 812254.
