(KZN.RU, November 30, Alina Berezhnaya). Today the final chord of the All-Russian festival of children's creativity “Good Wave” was played at the gala concert at the concert complex “Pyramid”. All funds raised from the sale of tickets for the gala concert will be used for the treatment of Timur Fazliev from Tatarstan. The operation in Germany will give him the opportunity to get out of his wheelchair.
Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the RT, Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, Anna Kuznetsova, the Commissioner at the President of the RF for Children's Rights, Igor Krutoy, the general producer of the festival and a composer, congratulated the gifted children from all over the country. Also, a greeting telegram by Vladimir Putin, the President of the Russian Federation, was read to the participants of the festival at the opening ceremony of the gala concert.
Rustam Minnikhanov, in his welcoming speech, expressed his gratitude to the Foundation for Support of Presidential Grants, which took over the main funding of the festival. He also thanked everyone who helped in organizing the holiday for children. “The title “Good Wave” speaks for itself. Thank you for celebrating this holiday with us. This is a great chance for children to express themselves. I am sincerely grateful to everyone who supports children. Tatarstan is always open for such events. I want to wish the competition to be at a high level. We are always glad to see you. Welcome”, said Rustam Minnikhanov.
Igor Krutoy thanked the leadership of Kazan and Tatarstan for organizing the festival and expressed the hope that next year there will be more participants. “Thank you for such a reception in Kazan. Special gratitude to the President of the country for the presidential grant, thanks to which we have the opportunity to conduct selection rounds in 10 regions of the country. I hope next year there will be more of these cities, because, unfortunately, there is enough trouble in each city. The more cities we cover, the warmer and better our children will be”, said Igor Krutoy.
130 talented children from all over the country reached the final of the competition from 10 regions. Each of these children made a big step towards victory.
“Make your dreams come true” is not just a festival motto, but a call to action for young talents. Many of the participants were able to achieve high success, despite health limitations. 11-year-old Daniil Khachaturov from Samara struggles against cancer. The disease did not pass without leaving a trace - the boy was left blind. The victory over cancer taught Daniel to never give up. So, thanks to his strong voice, the boy makes his way to the big stage. Daniel had sung a duet with Diana Gurtskaya, and won prizes at various competitions always.
Nikolay Vasilenko feels confident on the stage. The boy is visually impaired, but there are no limitations in his work. The dream of an 11-year-old boy is to play an acoustic guitar and get to know popular performers of our time.
Today, Mikhail Nepip from Sevastopol was in the center of the stage and in front of a thousand public. The boy has cerebral palsy. But when this child reads the poem “Letter of the Mother” by Sergey Esenin, the spectators stop breathing, and after the performance, he received the standing applauds. The boy wanted to meet with Igor Krutoy and his wish came true.
However, the dreams were fulfilled for all participants of the festival. Young talents were on the same stage with famous artists of Russian pop music: Philipp Kirkorov, Sergey Lazarev, Valeria, Yulianna Karaulova, and Dina Garipova. Artists sang songs for children and gave them souvenirs.
Children's dreams will be fulfilled after the gala concert as well. One of the participants of the festival, Timur Fazliev from Tatarstan, dreams of getting on his feet. The boy needs an expensive operation in Germany, which will enable him to get up from his wheelchair. The child’s wish will come true very soon. All funds raised from the sale of tickets for the gala concert will be directed to Timur’s treatment.
All the inhabitants of the country will be able to see the gala concert of the festival. It will be shown on the NTV channel in the days of the New Year holidays.
