Following her Int'l Symposium, Ms. Rozalina Gutman joined other members of Russian Delegation Ms. Maria Kabalevsky and Prof. Edward Abdullin for the concert of classical and folk Russian music by the members of Music Dept. of Kamchatka Arts College at the Jiang Jie Piano City Culture & Arts Center. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that among over a thousand (!) employed music teachers (for over 30.000 (!!) students, enrolled throughout Beijing), about 20 teachers were invited from Russia, some of whom we were pleased to meet. After the concert we were invited to the ceremonial Friendship Dinner that boasted incredible variety of traditional local delicacies some of which were discovered by Russians for the 1st time. Everyone was deeply touched by such warm reception and a personal visit of the owner of the entire institution, who came to greet the guests from out of town.
29th World Conference of ISME had a special theme "Harmony and the World Future" (that is actually truly resonant to the message on the t-shirt, produced by C.H.A.R.I.S.M.A. foundation, related to the powerful brain/music research data).It is indisputable that music is one of the most powerful means to achieve inner and outer harmony, thus regular music practice through quality music education has incredibly positive transformative power on human mind and brain development.
According to the long-lasting tradition, ISME conferences provide very special experiences for community interaction for the Performing Groups that are selected to join the conference.
