More than a hundred participants of the contest - bayan, squeezebox and accordion players, marched from the Stone Flower fountain to the Main Street Stage of the Exposition and collectively performed the composition “Katyusha”. The procession ended with a festive concert. 

The contest ‘Vivat, Bayan!’ is one of the most titled in our country. Students of art schools, music schools and higher educational institutions come to participate in it. This is a very good start for further creative growth for a musician of any level," said the orchestra director Alexei Maslov.

The international contest “Vivat, Bayan!” is held annually in the Samara region. The idea to hold it was conceived by the Russian musician, Merited Artist of Russia Sergei Voitenko in 2002. For 21 years the best musicians of Russia and the world have performed on the festival stage: William Sabatier, Nicolas Massoutier, Claudio Iacomucci, Eric Bouvel and many others.

Alexei Maslov, head of the orchestra, said that the bayan was created in Samara by Pavel Chulkov. This famous bayanist, designer of musical instruments, modernized the Russian squeezebox and made it chromatic - it began to play in all thirty tonalities that exist in music. 

Russia is the birthplace of the bayan. This is actually true. It was in our country that our Great Russian bayan was created. The soul of the bayan is the soul of Russia,” emphasized orchestra artist Ivan Firsanov.

The competition annually gathers more than a hundred young musicians from all over Russia and the world. It not only allows beginners to demonstrate their talents, but also gives the best of them a real opportunity to reach the world level. The contest “Vivat, Bayan!” is a qualifying stage for the world competitions of bayanists and accordionists “World Trophy” and “World Cup”.

This year the contest “Vivat, Bayan!” for the first time will be held in Moscow at the RUSSIA EXPO from June 25 to 29. The venue will be Pavilion No. 55 “Home of Youth”. The artistic director of the event will be Sergei Voitenko.
