Two days are left until “Songs of Abai” online competition

This Monday, on July 13, a national competition for unprofessional performers, dedicated to the 175th anniversary of Abai will start in Kazakhstan. People who want to take part in it can be both nationals of Kazakhstan and member countries of the International Organization of Turkic Culture. The creative project that will last until August 9 was organized at the initiative of the Abai Kazakh State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet. Participants only need to perform their favorite work of the poet, record it and send to jury. All the videos will be posted on the theatre’s official YouTube channel.

Winners will be determined via online voting and announced on August 10. The most interesting part is that they will not only receive certificates, but also can be invited to plays in the famous theatre.

More detailed information on the competition can be found on the official website www.gatob.kz and pages on social media.
