The NPR’s Tour in the Kursk and Belgorod Oblasts

Vladimir Spivakov and the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia continue touring Russia within the “Cultural Platform” project of the “Art, Science and Sport” Charity Foundation formed by Alisher Usmanov, supported also by Metalloinvest Company.
