I welcome you to Moscow and wish to congratulate all those taking part in the 10th International Military Musical Festival Spasskaya Tower.
The Festival is famous for its diverse and highly entertaining program, as well as its special inspirational atmosphere. Audiences always look forward to this event, and it may truly be considered to be a hallmark venue of the Russian capital. Its spectacular and impressive concerts have won acclaim as a triumphant success. Each year, Spasskaya Tower is an event that attracts an increasingly large number of military bands and outstanding soloists, choreographic and folk ensembles from all across Russia and many foreign countries.
I fell confident that this artistic forum will be run at a high organizational level and will be of great interest to all those who are fond of classical and contemporary music, and to those who revere the history of Russia’s martial valor, and honor the country’s legendary traditions of military service.
President of the Russian Federation
