‘Friends, we have been silent for a long time, it was a time of realization, acceptance and grief, but the importance of the common cause for which we have gathered together, common cause launched by Dmitri during his life, and a great responsibility for the destinies of children, motivates us to continue this mission. The goal is to create a civic social responsibility for the most vulnerable, helpless members of society – our children, for whom it is especially difficult.

‘We will ask for help from our friends and we will share what we have – communication through talent and creativity.

‘To form, through artistic events and relationships with extraordinary figures in the world of culture and art, a civil, friendly environment in which the suffering of children would occur less. We are proud to announce the first concert in Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s memory in his homeland, in Krasnoyarsk. It will be held on August 26, on Peace Square. We are waiting for you, friends, and we invite you to take part in the preparations for this event.’

    Dima will never die as long as we remember him.
