Moscow is such a fascinating city if you visit it like a local. This summer is interesting for outdoors enthusiasts who like music as they can embark on the Maestro to admire the summer panoramas of the Moscow River and to enjoy concerts under the naked skies.
"Music on the Water" is a summer cultural program. The shop Maestro welcomes guests at the Krasnopresnenskaya embankment 3, and takes them on the waves of the Moscow River for a live performance with stunning panoramic water views. The concerts are performed by the Imperialis Orchestra. The "Seasons and Other Masterpieces" program on August 20 features masterpieces by Vivaldi, Benedetto Marcello, and Astor Piazzolla. Besides the Imperials Orchestra, performers also include saxofonist Taras Gusarov, and Artemiy Menshikov. This concert begins at 5:00 pm and lasts for about 75 minutes.
At 8 pm, the ship sails again with the chamber orchestra Non-Stop Music that will delight listeners with "Symphonic rock hits," which will include well-known ballads by Scorpions, Rammstein, Metallica, Nirvana, Queen, Guns N 'Roses, and others.
August 20 is the last day for music buffs to enjoy a concert on the water. Tickets are still available via Belcanto
If you miss this event, you can still enjoy music outdoors in August, but not on the water. The "EcoFest" 2017
has a different purpose: to inspire environmental awareness. A family event, "EcoFest" 2017 will take place in the Hermitage Garden in the last weekend of the month. The guests will find a food court with healthy food, yoga classes, a playground for the little ones, a lecture hall for a variety of educational programs, and naturally, good music under the skies, including a drum show on the open stage. With free entrance, this festival promises to attract many visitors on August 26-27, 2017.
