Chairman of the Council of Composers and Musical Figures of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly Andrey Baturin congratulates everyone on the International Music Day.

- Dear ladies and gentlemen, friends and colleagues of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly!

I congratulate you on the International Music Day, which is celebrated annually on October 1. I would like to wish everyone regardless of musical and creative professional preferences, regardless of the autumn weather and the difficulties of the pandemic, the good, kind musical art of the countries and peoples of Eurasia will always live in your hearts, warm, support and help in all your endeavours.

Only loyalty to our roots, the continuation, study and development of national cultural traditions will allow us to preserve and multiply the innermost and dear things that were laid down by our ancestors and make up the main genetic code of any country, any nation.

The Council of Composers and Musical Figures of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly tries to develop and strengthen interethnic relations in the field of professional musical art, based on the ideals of peace and friendship between peoples. We understand the importance of creative exchange and mutual respect for each other's cultural values. By implementing cross-cultural projects and programs, we try to use the peaceful power of the art of our composers and musicians to resist the challenges of today, proving that true creativity and the great power of cultural values, united by the ideas of humanism, humanity, and co-creation, always win.

Let high music always sound in your hearts! Let good melodies and songs bring peace and harmony to life every day!
