Pyotr Ivanov, Deputy Head of the Moscow Region Government and Alena Sokolskaya, Head of the Klin District attended the concert. Pyotr Ivanov appraised it as a great pleasure. “They are talented young musicians. I am pleased that our Russian companies are becoming art patrons and sponsor the Russian culture development. The music is stunning, and the performance is very decent. Mikhail Simonyan is a talented violin player and an outstanding conductor. Today he is the youngest symphony orchestra leader in our country. The fact that he was able to establish and manage this orchestra is an evidence of his high potential. I am sure he will grow into a world star,” said Pyotr Ivanov.

After Klin, the Kaluga Youth Symphony Orchestra will deliver similar concerts in the Kaluga, Kursk, Lipetsk, Oryol, Ryazan, Tambov and Tula Regions.
