September the 8th and the 9th , 2021, at “Oktyabrskiy” Big Concert Hall in Saint Petersburg, held were two grandiose concerts devoted to the memorable dates of the city. Svetlana, being a true Petersburger, could not miss them!
On September the 8th, the Day of Remembrance the Victims of Leningrad Siege, here was the concert “I am talking to you from Leningrad”. The audience of the concert was the veterans of war and labor and the citizens that survived in the Siege. For them that day Svetlana sang her songs “Leningrad” (to the verses of O. Mandelshtam) and – for the first time ever – “Leningradki” (“Women of Leningrad”) (music by V. Pleshak, lyrics by M. Dakhie). She was accompanied by Song and Dance Ensemble of the Western Military Region.
On September the 9th, at the same venue, held was a festive concert dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the return of its original name to the city – Saint Petersburg. At this concert Svetlana also performed several songs dedicated to her hometown: “Sredi Ogney” (“Among the Lights”) (author – Svetlana Surganova), “Gorod Zolotoy” (“Golden City”) (author – Boris Grebenshchikov) and the same “Leningrad”. This time she was accompanied by “Tavricheskiy” International Symphony Orchestra.
