…Each of us has his/her own Pushkin, Pushkin remains ours for all of us. He appears in the very beginning of life and never leaves it up to the end. (с)
Today is the 221 st anniversary of our Alexander Pushkin, the most ever beloved, ever timeless, ever people’s poet. He is the one who inspired “Surganova ant the Orchestra” band to create the “PushkinRyadom” art-space and supported us in the creation. Congratulations to all loving Pushkin! And for this holiday we announce a small Pushkin places excursion in our social networks!
“Reka” (“The River”) song occupies the 9 th line of “Chartova Duzhina”, and we are proud of it, even in spite of some losing the ground, still, we have been in the top positions of the chart for 17 weeks already!
And this is not the main thing! The most important is that as many as 13 compositions by “Surganova and the Orchestra” are in the final list of the 100 best songs of “NASHE Radio”! All in all, it’s a real record and it is entirely your merit! Thanks to everyone who’s voted and goes on voting – you are the best!
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!

That’s a first: “Surganova and the Orchestra” will perform at VK Fest!
This year the traditional fest by Vkontakte will be online, from May 15 till May 21, and we are among the guest stars! The exact time of the concert is not known yet, so follow the news – we’ll announce asap.
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.
Our dear friends, “Surganova and the Orchestra” band is seventeen years old! Is it only 17 or already 17 – we have not decided yet, all we know for sure is that 17 is great: the blossom of youth, the eternal spring of the heart and lots of amazing discoveries ahead!
We are grateful to each member of our band, a former, present and even, what the hell, a future one! We remain forever grateful to each of you for the mere fact that you generously, devotedly and sincerely love us. Thanks a lot!
We were eager to perform an online concert for you today, but, alas, it hasn’t worked out so far.
We ask you to understand and forgive us – birthday people are not getting beaten! And we have something else, very special for you, it is a recording of our author's performance “OtnosheniYa” (“The RelatIons”), staged on January 2, 2015 at the Bolshoi Drama Theatre. You’ll enjoy it, we are sure!
