Belarus is a nation with a rich musical tradition. With volunteer effort, a series of concerts on the theme “Veterans are always young in their minds” were organized. In addition, participants in the activities assisted musical groups from different regions of Belarus on May 7 and 8 in preparation for the Festival of Wartime Songs.

More than a thousand musicians from all regions of Belarus have gathered each year for this veterans music festival on May 9 commemorating the victory over Fascism.
