A final concert of VIII International Contest of modern spiritual and polyphonic musicians “Polyphonic 2017” took place in the St. Peter and Paul Lutheran Church (Peterskirche) in St. Petersburg.

About 150 people gathered in Peterskirche to listen to the concert. Young musicians performed their compositions in different musical styles. For instance, student choir of St. Petersburg Herzen State Pedagogic University “Ex anima” sang cantata by M. I. Glinka. A young flute player performed a solo song by a composer Artur Onegger. A female trio performed a piece for hoboy, flute and piano.

There were foreign guests as well as foreign students studying in St. Petersburg among the performers. For example, a young British piano player from Manchester played a partita by I. S. Bach. And a student from China sang a tenor aria of Faust from the Charles Guno opera, he was accompanied by the piano.

At the end of the concert, all award-winners were given prizes by the main organized of the contest – the professor from St. Petersburg Culture and Arts University Dmitry Schirin.
