In winter 2018, the European Foundation for Support of Culture, together with the Kazakh Concert Association and with the support of the British Embassy in Kazakhstan, will hold Days of Great Britain in the modern capital of Kazakhstan – Astana.
The programme of the Days of Great Britain will include concerts by highly- acclaimed classical music stars and master classes by leading professors.
Concerts will take place at the best concert halls of Astana: the concert Hall named after Zhabaev, the Organ Hall, the Kazakhstan Central Concert Hall with the accompaniment of the Kazakh State Academy of Soloists Orchestra under the direction of Maltese conductor Alan Chircop. World- class musicians will take part in these events, as well as the choir of the Kazakh National University of Arts, whose choir master Batyrgian Smakov has the highest male voice in Kazakhstan. Together they will perform music by the most famous British composers: William Byrd, Henry Purcell, Edward Elgar, Gustav Holst, Arthur Sullivan, and others.
A special feature of the Days of Great Britain will be a photo exhibition dedicated to the life of The Beatles, the most popular British band in the world, whose music will be celebrated in a spectacular tribute concert.
