    Rector's Address to the Participants of the Forum

    Dear Guests and Participants of the 8th Paparac Kvetka International Student Choral Forum!

    The Belarusian State University is glad to welcome the talented young students that share a love for the song in its classic sounding and transmit it to the world with the power of pure voice!

    Stunning 7 notes of music can unite people, create harmony, and inspire new achievements. Our Forum is intended to facilitate this process, involving modern trends, but also anxiously preserving 8-year traditions of the Forum existence.

    It's no secret that the figure "8" inverted from vertical to horizontal position becomes a sign of infinity. Let us hope that the next generation of our students will search in spring for their special "Paparac Kvetka", a magic fern flower, and always carry a huge love for music and choral singing through the years!

    Paparac Kvetka is a unique polyphony, which will perform the most sincere hymn of Love, Beauty, Friendship! Let the sound of these compositions be crystal clear and sublime!

    Big success! Great creativity! Let octaves be wide and the notes high!

    Good luck!
