Belarus Presidential Orchestra celebrating 15th anniversary

On October 20, the honored collective of the country, the Presidential Orchestra, celebrates its 15th anniversary.

By the way, the orchestra gave the first concert in the Palace of the Republic, which also marks the anniversary on these days.

I remember the first performance, it was just on this very stage. We presented the first program of the Presidential Orchestra. We showed a multi-genre program, from classics to jazz.

During these 15 years, we have been, so to speak, guarding the musical protocol.

Belarus leader Alexander Lukashenko congratulated the team on the festive date. The head of state noted that today the orchestra is laying a solid foundation for the preservation and further development of the best traditions of the Belarusian people, spiritually enriching it, instilling in the younger generation a sense of beauty and pride in their homeland.

Well, the President's Orchestra... The whole symbol is in its name. I would like to note the high status of this orchestra, which has won fans over these 15 years, fans who respect it not only in Belarus, but also abroad.
