This academic year, 63 young musicians received education in 13 specialties from grades 1 to 11. Students of the 11th grade graduated from the branch this year, for the first time in the history of its existence. This honour was enjoyed by students Anatasia Zhukova (violin) and Arina Krivenko (piano). The girls are going to have state exams and be admitted to the conservatory next.

“You are the first in a series of future famous performers who studied within these walls. You are our golden fund of culture. Each has many achievements, victories, but this is just the beginning. Genius is not only success, but also constant work, daily training and exercises behind it,” congratulated the graduates Ilya Barinov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Kaliningrad Region.

The students of the branch presented a concert, the culmination of which was the performance made by the graduates as part of a chamber ensemble with K. Khachaturian’ work “Sonata for Violin and Piano”.

Special attention was paid to the new “home” of the Central Music School branch in Kaliningrad. A video about the educational complex construction phases with “before” and “after” photos was presented on a big screen.

“In November 2021, the branch acquired “its own HOUSE” by moving to the educational complex on the Oktyabrsky Island, built to educate talented children. A unique modern infrastructure has been created here, which helps achieve high results in education,” said Larisa Volkova, Director of the Baltic Branch of the Central Music School.

By the beginning of the new academic year, service housing will be ready. Teachers of the cultural cluster will live in comfortable conditions. The apartments will be fully equipped with modern appliances and furniture.

I wish the talented students of the branch of the Central Music School to achieve great success. Happy holiday!” pointed out Dmitry Rzhannikov, General Director of LLC STG-Zapad.
