The final concert

Preparation for the concert. As the concert approached, the issue of acquiring national costumes for the project participants was acute. Gulnara Ibraeva, Executive Director of Innovative Solution Inc. initiated fundraising among representatives of non-governmental organizations. In this case, the principle «a lot of spits (people), a lake forms» worked, unlike other types of fundraising that Aigine CRC undertook in December 2013-March 2014. The amount of 40,000 soms was spent on the acquisition of 10 women’s and 5 men’s national costumes in a full set for boarding students.

The concert’s press release was distributed through social networks, but there wasn’t any mass media advertising. The partners of Aigine CRC represented by the Ministry of Education of the Kyrgyz Republic, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic, and the Kyrgyz Republican Society of the Blind and Deaf invited those who wanted to watch the concert, thereby filling the entire auditorium.

Conducting the concert. May 26, 2014, at 16-00 in the Great Hall of the Kyrgyz State Philharmonic named after T. Satylganov hosted a concert “Light of the Soul” with project participants and volunteers. In connection with the death of the main mentor of the project, Nurak Abdrakhmanov, the format of the concert was changed. The originally planned reporting concert was held as a farewell concert of Nurak Abdrakhmanov. The concert began with the “Zhoktoo” (mourning) of the master, and continued with the performance of the work of Nurak Abdrakhmanov “Ata Murasy”. Despite the sad event, the project participants steadfastly withstood the entire concert and demonstrated all their talent at the highest level. Invited guests of the concert were Mirbek Atabekov, Julia Rutskaya and Bakyt Zhakypov.
