We are friends with your Republic for several years.

The festival was a real celebration of friendship. Your people are very hospitable. I liked the performances in theaters, small towns, but the most memorable concert at Children’s Hospital. Despite the rain, sick kids are gone, but continued to watch our shows .. It was very good. And more like a walk along the Volga. Your river is so beautiful.

Republican Clinical Hospital

May 30, 2008 GV part of the festival was a big concert at the RSC. These kontserty- already established tradition. Each time the festival comes to town as part of Children’s Day, young artists from other countries congratulate our children with their performances. It is the best gift for the sick children who are forced to spend in the hospital a long time. The concert began at the site in front of the central entrance. About 500 children, parents, medical staff became spectators and participants even dance of friendship. And when the rain came the audience did not want to diverge and the concert had to be moved to the auditorium of the therapeutic department, which could not accommodate everyone. Then put the wheelchair in the hall and the little ones. The guys from the hospital very much a holiday of friendship.

6-year-old girl after the show told everyone that she now have to get better.

Friendship Festival was the best medicine. We look forward to participating in the next festival DRKB sure!
