For the third year in a row, in the village of Mramorskoye, Sverdlovsk region, on the border of two parts of the world - Europe and Asia, with the support of the Representative Office of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly in the Sverdlovsk region (Russia), a concert is being held at the site of the operating quarry of the Ural marble enterprise.


This year the concert was dedicated to the 255th anniversary of the arrival of the expedition of Major General Ya.I. Dannenberg to the Urals, to the village of Marmorskoe. The purpose of his expedition was to organize the activities of the Gornoshchitsky marble factory, from that moment the industrial development of marble in the Urals began. CH (Yekaterinburg, Russia) were at a depth of 75 meters, and the audience was at the top, on the observation deck. The acoustics of the marble quarry, reminiscent of an ancient Greek amphitheater, contributed to the spread of live sound and gave the action a fantastic character.

The idea took root, and two other marble quarry sites were chosen for the summer 2020 concert. At the very bottom, the PO-quartet, a quartet of saxophonists conducted by Alexei Zakharov (Yekaterinburg, Russia), performed. The effect of reflected sound made it possible not to use additional amplifying devices.

Then the audience could enjoy playing the Kazakh national instrument - dombra - which was masterfully demonstrated by a member of the Sverdlovsk regional public organization "Eurasia-Kazakhstan" Bakhchan Tasmaganbetov.

> Sacred music quartet of the Monastery in the name of the Holy Royal Passion-Bearers in the Ganina Yama tract, conducted by Yevgeny Kaloshi, performed Russian sacred music. The open-air words of prayer, combined with the ingenious works of Russian classics, won the hearts of the audience.

Ekaterinburg artist Kristina Krosyankovskaya during the concert created the painting "The Sea We've Never Seen", visualizing the story of the transformation of the ancient sea into a magnificent section of gray Ural marble.

According to the audience and experts, the authentic environment of the marble quarry has excellent prospects for promoting various genres of musical art. The organizers are planning to hold a colorful and original concert of ethnic music here next year, Representation of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly in Sverdlovsk areas.
