In accordance with the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 830 dated June 6, 2020, the organizers will provide further information on the procedure for returning tickets after the heightened state of alert is lifted.

CHARITY ONLINE-MARATHON IN SUPPORT OF CHILDREN OF IGOR BOTVIN, THE MUSICIAN

Attention! This is “PushkinRyadom”!

On Monday, June 1, at 2 p.m., at our art-space held will be the charity online-marathon, organized by the musicians from all over the world in support of the kids of Igor Botvin, the cellist, the artist of Saint Petersburg Symphony Orchestra, and Ekaterina Shmeleva, the violinist. Live performances will be broadcast in our Instagram accounts: @surganova_official and @pushkinryadom_official.

Doctors for a long time could not decide on the disease of 5-year-old Mark and 3-year-old Adrian. But on April 24, 2020, the results of a genetic examination came. Children were diagnosed with adrenoleukodystrophy. This disease is not treated in Russia. Only urgent allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) treated with gene-modified LENTI-D (Vector) can save the lives of Mark and Adrian.

The family of Igor Botvin and Ekaterina Shmeleva has already received consent for the treatment at Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) Center, University of Minnesota. The cost of treatment is 60 309 805 rubles. To raise the necessary funds, musicians of Saint Petersburg symphony orchestras, artists of Mariinsky Theater, Saint Petersburg Academic Philharmonic named after D. Shostakovich, Mikhailovsky Theater, Tauride Orchestra, as well as musicians from the USA, Germany, France, Switzerland, Chile and other countries will perform at the marathon. And, of course, your favorite artist will be in touch!

Join us – there will be many interesting people, beautiful music and sincere emotions. And most importantly – the maximum benefit for a large-scale and important deed!

  • to the card of Sberbank: 5469 5500 2084 7676
  • to the card of Tinkoff Bank: 5536 9138 2899 4745

CONGRATULATIONS ON VICTORY DAY!

Our dear friends, congratulations on the Day, on the anniversary of the Great Victory!

We want to say so much today and at the same time don’t want to say a word: all the most important things have been said before us, in films and songs, in people’s memories, a whole life is not enough to absorb and comprehend.

Therefore, we just ask you about two things: always remember and do everything to prevent a recurrence. We are capable of this because the peace on the Earth is made of little things: our relationships, our gratitude and responsibility.

May our Heroes forever be remembered!
