Total Dictation – 2020 was held yesterday in Russia and 69 countries worldwide.
Participation in this event became a welcome tradition for Svetlana Surganova. Herzen Russian State Pedagogical University was the venue for the third time. Many thanks to the organizers for their hospitality!
Svetlana read the text of the dictation (by writer Andrei Gelasimov). She also invented a new sign language – the Surg- language! We hope that the reader’s artistry helped all the participants to use punctuation marks correctly.
Thanks for the flowers and gifts!

Today “Lovkiy Myatch” (“Skilled Ball”) -2020 tournament took place!
This year, due to the restrictions, only one match was played: between the fan-team of “Surganova and the Orchestra” and INTER-5 team of Boarding School # 5 from Podberezie village, Novgorod Region. But what a match it was! Our team proved to be a worthy rival, we were concentrated, dynamic, reckless and professional more than ever! There were many breathtaking and amazing moments at the gates!
As a result, friendship won as always, but the score was 10: 6 in favor of the boys from Novgorod.
Many thanks to all the players and to our active fans, of course! Your rattles and chants cheered us up! Thanks to “Shag Navstrechu” Charitable Foundation for the multi-year support of the tradition!
We start training for “Lovkiy Myatch” (“Skilled Ball”) -2021!
Photos of the tournament by Sergey Toti are in the album in our GALLERY.

This year Saint Petersburg has been chosen as the capital of the Total Dictation -2020!
According to the already established tradition, Svetlana Surganova will read the text of the dictation for those wishing to test their literacy at Herzen Russian State Pedagogical University.
It is very simple to become a participant: you need to register in your personal account on the TD-2020 website and after registration select the venue of the Herzen Pedagogical University, h.52 on the 1st line of Vasilyevsky Island.
The opening time for registration at the Total Dictation website is October 8, at 5:00 Moscow time (the dictation is written in all time zones, it isn’t possible to choose an ideal start time for everyone, so we ask you for understanding of such an early for us start of registration).
We’ll be happy to see our fans sitting at the desks!
We have more good news for those who were worried about our birthday performance in Moscow. There will be one more concert, on October 11! This means that everyone will be able to get in, even despite the 50% restrictions.
Please, be aware that the following tickets will be valid for the concert on October 10: newly purchased tickets, April Concert tickets and Summer Concert tickets. If you have a ticket for the Band’s Birthday Concert and also a ticket for the Summer Concert, the ticket for the Summer Concert should be returned. Don’t be confused: a refund for a purchased ticket is possible only if a concert is cancelled, not postponed.
Only new tickets are valid for the Concert on October 11. See you on October 10 and 11 at 1930 Moscow club!

Unfortunately, we have to cancel our Moscow Summer Concert on August 6 at Krasnaya Presnya park due to the impossibility of holding it (Decree of the Mayor of Moscow dated March 16, 2020 No. 21-УM “On amendments to the decree of the Mayor of Moscow dated March 5, 2020 No. No. 12-УM”).
But don’t be upset! Everyone who has bought tickets will be able to attend our concert on October 10 at “1930 Moscow” club or future events of the band. Tickets are valid, you do not need to exchange them.
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.
