Magomayev International Singers’ Contest was founded in 2010 as a unique pageant where contestants sing classic pop songs along with opera arias. It is a great challenge for young singers to have their talents exposed in front of the professional jury chaired by Tamara Sinyavskaya, People's Artist of the USSR. High-level requirements at the contest are set by the unique talent of Muslim Magomayev, a top-rated Soviet singer. This only adds value to the awards received by the winners.
This year, we are proud to present a unique concert featuring winners of the 2010 and 2012 contests:
