A Russian folk music concert in the EC Ambassadors residence by teenagers from a Pskov region childrens home helped raise funds for three orphans, charity organizations this April. The three were the Moscow Charity Funds Alphavit and Big Change, and the Pskov Region organization Sprout, which received a European Community grant in 2007. As well as the concert, there was an exhibition and sale of photographs, paintings and other handicrafts made by the children.

It was the first time the children, 14-17, performed in the capital, in such surrounding before foreigners. Although they were nervous, their mastery over the accordion, balalaika, glockenspiel, metallic triangle and synthesizers earned them a round of applause after the first song, which set them at ease. For the second part of the concert, the 100 guests were mesmerized by seasoned professionals, lead by Valery Kondratov- Prilipko on the balalaika. This true virtuoso resides in Italy and captivated the audience.
