Spassk hosted the regional festival of pop groups “Serve Russia”
On May 14, five vocal and instrumental ensembles performed at the Spassky District House of Culture. Each of them bears the title of “People’s Amateur Team”. Vocal and instrumental ensembles “Splav” of the Klepikovskiy RDK, “Scythians” of the Lesnovsky recreation center of the Shilovsky district, “Second wind” of the Izhevsk SDK, “Spassk” and “Carousel-musik” of the Spassky RDK presented their work to the Spassky audience.
The bands presented musical numbers of different styles and trends, author’s songs and cover versions of famous compositions. They were evaluated by a professional jury, chaired by the famous Ryazan singer, head of the Mama Jass band. Ella Khrustaleva:
“There were a lot of emotions during the concert. Not only because a lot of music from school childhood and youth sounded today. My colleagues and I have already discussed that it was a kind of “Disco of the 80s”. It’s great that the bands have raised this layer of our pop culture. Thanks to the artists for their loyalty to creativity, music, it is clear how each of them is devoted to his work. During the program of the Spassky team “Carousel-musik” I even burst into tears. Such mastery, possession of the instrument is something fantastic.”
As a result, the ensemble under the direction of Georgy Poplavsky became the laureate of the 1st degree, as well as the team “Scythians”.
After working on the jury, Ella Khrustaleva made a gift to the Saviors – she sang several songs. Participants and guests of the festival were greeted by the head of the regional department of culture Sergey Kochetkov. On behalf of the head of the administration of the Spassky district, Igor Tishin, he presented letters of thanks to the teams. Director of the Unified Club System Elena Kiseleva presented them with a big pie from the Oka restaurant.
