On September 26 an unusual concert will be held at the Concert Hall of the Ufa College of Art.
The program named «Rock-Symphony» will be performed by Symphony Orchestra of the Bashkir State Opera and Ballet Theatre conducted by Valery Platonov. The art director of the theatre, the Honoured Artist of Russia, People's Artist of Bashkortostan, winner of the National Theatre Award "Golden Mask" for the first time will stand at the conductor's podium after returning to his native Ufa in July this year.
