Dear colleagues, dear friends!
In 2012, in Minsk the Belarusian Union of Music Figures and the Belarusian State Academy of Music established the Republican contest of young vocalists named after F.I. Chaliapin. Four past contests received a positive response as an important event aimed at fostering a new generation of spiritual culture, understanding and love for native and world art.
