Annual Holiday Celebration for children 

Our annual Holiday Celebration for children! Children were excited to help find the Snow Maiden and save her from evil characters they met on their way!
Ежегодный детский праздник наконец-то состоялся! Дед Мороз(Алексей Глазырин) пришёл на помощь детям и подсказал им как пробраться в сказочный лес, чтобы спасти от злого Кащея (Григорий Вылегжанин) Снегурочку (Евангелина Рэнчир), Баба Яга (Мария Бриджуотер) и Кот Матвей (Александр Чадлиев) всеми силами пытались остановить Машу (Маргарита Саевич) и Витю (Стефан Кулешов – Ледбеттер), которые смело отправились в опасную дорогу! Змей Горыныч(Семён Косухин) грозился спалить всё вокруг, но детям удалось убежать от него, а добрая Васелиса(Ксения Косухина) всегда оказывалась рядом, когда Маше и Вите нужна была помощь! И даже когда слуги Кащея Илья Рэнчир и Дэниел Рэнчир схватили Машу в царстве Кащея, догадливая Маша сумела найти выход из ситуации излечив сильную зубную боль Кащея волшебной конфетой! В нашей сказке был прекрасный весёлый конец с песнями и танцами, где Снегурочка снова встретилась с детьми и дедом Морозом, Маша и Витя доказали всем, что дружба творит чудеса, а дружный коллектив на сцене и за кадром был счастлив подарить детям праздник! Режиссер-постановщик и руководитель проекта Евгения Романова-Рэнчир, гримёр и творческий руководитель Ксения Косухина, танцевальный коллектив Виктории Бёрдж “Жар-Птица”, семья Глазыриных, Чадлиевых, Саевич, Кулешовых-Ледбеттер, Косухиных, Дэйвис, Бриджуотер, Рэнчир и Майк Гоуринг. Мы вас благодарим за Вашу работу! Спонсоры нашего вечера:

Celebration 

 

Yuri Naumov Concert

Yuri Naumov  Concert in Lenexa, KS

Great concert took place on February 5, 2019

Yuri Naumov immigrated to USA in 1990. 

About the concert: Escapist – the name of the new album, is the biggest project in 35 year career by this blues guitar player.

It is an incredible journey where baroque and rock work together, where you will feel the harmony or sound and lyrics in every song.

“Эскапист”. Так называется новый студийный альбом блюзового гитариста Юрия Наумова – самый масштабный проект, предпринятый легендарным музыкантом за 35 лет активного сочинительства.
Вне зависимости, знакомы ли вы с творчеством Наумова или пришли впервые, вас ждет невероятное путешествие – в измерение, где барокко и рок сплетены воедино, где боль строк неотделима от радости гармоний, где в вибрации каждого звука – Свобода…
