June came and Summer University opened its classes for foreign students who are willing to improve their knowledge of the Russian language. Foreign guests are awaited here with grammar and speaking lessons, and plunging into the language environment. Besides that, this year everyone is without doubt cheered up with warm sunny weather, blossoming city and long light evenings.
The cultural life in the city is lively at the beginning of summer, too: the festivals “White Nights” and “Onego Classic”, the ethno forum of the Finno-Ugric peoples, the upcoming celebration events on the Day of Russia, the Day of the Republic and the Town Day are arriving to Petrozavodsk.
Our foreign students get involved, too. They had an opportunity to listen to the concert of the Symphony Orchestra right in front of the entrance of PetrSU and on the 6th of June they visited an unusual concert program “Hot Flame of Tauno Palo’s Songs” which was presented on the scene of Petrozavodsk Conservatory. The charismatic and soulful performance and amazing vocal gifts of the Finnish artists affected everyone, even those who didn’t know the Finnish language.
