FORUM 2010

Rector's address to the participants of the forum.

Dear friends!

The Belarusian State University is glad to greet young and talented actors of the Paparats- Kvetka V.International Student Choir Forum, 2010!

Our life is changing rapidly, but the need to develop and preserve the customs and traditions of national culture is still important.

Word, music, song are the headstones of this culture, they ennoble the human soul, penetrate into its most hidden corners. Personality development is perhaps the most important, the most significant goal of Creativity!

No wonder, the symbol and talisman of the Forum is the legendary flower of a fern (Bel. Paparats-Kvetka). It is a flower of spiritual quest, patience, faith, hard work, discovery of nature mysteries; a flower, the search of which takes sometimes the whole life ...

The glow of the fern flower may be invisible to the human eye, but each of us finds its triumph in the inspired soul.

The song, like the divine fire, is transmitted from generation to generation, leading the nation to peace and harmony. It unites and reconciles, rejoices and exults! Everything is in its power!

The aspiration to cognize the secrets of the human spirit through choral art is the main idea of the Paparats- Kvetka International Student Choir Forum.

We sincerely hope that its Majesty song will reign at the concert halls of the Forum with unfailing success!

Your youth, energy, talent and sublime love of song will make this world more harmonious one!

Good luck and inspiration!
