Hits: 68

The official opening ceremony of the project Singing Bridges was held on May, 26 in the framework of the City Day celebrations and was timed to the 315th anniversary of Saint Petersburg. 

Maestro Fabio Mastrangelo and the symphony orchestra Northern Symphony accompanied the show. The musicians performed the Hymn to the Great City by Reinhold Gliere as well as the music of the great Russian composers as Glinka, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Thaikovsky.

The Palace Bridge was raised exactly at midnight, and in honor of the City Day the Rostral Columns were lit. This beautiful show finished the festive events. During this weekend the citizens and visitors of Saint Petersburg had a great opportunity to see an interesting retro transport parade, the launching of the frigate Poltava, drummers parade, musical concerts and even a walk of a tight-rope walker who walked between the two wings of a singing Palace Bridge!

The annual show Singing Bridges is held from May, 26 till September, 2 in Saint Petersburg.
