Every year the Moscow metropolitan organizes unusual culture activities for passengers, like art and reading trains. It is already tradition in Moscow to finish the to commemorate the anniversary of the subway in Moscow by the night concert. This year metro celebrates its 78th birthday.
Today, 25th of May at 1:00 AM around 250 people came to the metro station Kropotkinskaia to attend a concert. The station is not very big and can not host more people. The concert is free but each guest has to get an invitation. The rule to get an invitation: till 23rd of May you have to send by email a quatrain which contains words: music, night and metro. 250 poems were selected and lucky people got an invitations. The best quatrains will be published on the official website. Interesting and creative way to involve people in a culture event.
Guests of the night concert were presented by different styles of music: an old English music, performed on historical instruments, jazz, Russian folk songs, and Soviet retro hits.
The last song of the concert was an unofficial hymn of Moscow, which is well known and loved by many Russians. People were singing together with the women's chamber ensemble Anima, a multiple winner of the international competition of choral singing. The video of this song is available on the YouTube.
