Successful young artistes receive strong state support

Every year, Belarus’ young talents give a concert. Laureates and scholarship and diploma holders of the Belarusian President’s Special Fund for Social Support of Gifted School and University Students join forces to show their skills. At the end of 2009, artistes from all over the country performed at the Palace of the Republic, enchanting the audience with their diversity of genres and high level of mastery.
The Fund supports those recognised for their talent: most have already claimed victories at international contests. The recent concert was held in a warm atmosphere, with friends, relatives and teachers of young artistes present. Youngsters sang songs and played the cello, violin, flute, clarinet, piano forte, accordion, guitar and cembalo…
Dancing and an interesting performance with hoops added extra variation and those present were generous in their applause. Such concerts offer the opportunity for young people to display their achievements and cast their eyes to the future. In addition to those taking part and winning for the first time were youngsters already recognised by the Presidential Fund; they study and work at the country’s top educational establishments and with the best artistic teams.
“The Fund is soon to celebrate its 14th birthday. In this time, hundreds of talented young Belarusians have been acknowledged by its awards,” the Chairperson of the Special Fund’s Board, Nina Mazai, tells us. “It’s a good example of strong state policy aimed at supporting artistic young people and national culture. Together, educational establishments, talented lecturers and caring parents create the right conditions to develop talent.” No doubt, the Belarusian firmament will soon be studded with new names.
Straw artworks by pupils from the Inspiration Studio (part of the Kletsk District Centre of Culture) had their works on show at the concert, showing that, even in the provinces, young artists are being encouraged.
