English “Spasskaya Tower”: cadets of school No. 1770 performed at the festival “Birmingham Tattoo 2018”

The cadets of school No. 1770 impressed the British with their performance at the Birmingham Tattoo 2018 international music festival in Birmingham on November 24 and 25.

It was the only orchestra that represented Russia in the UK. In the arena in the very center of Birmingham, 15 brilliant bands from Europe gave a concert, among which were musicians from Poland, Austria, Scotland and, of course, the hostess of the festival - England.

“The organizers of the festival invited the cadets to speak in Birmingham, it’s very flattering that the glory about the Moscow Cadet Music Corps has spread so far,” Mikhail Goremykin, the school’s director No. 1770, told the editor of the Nagatinsky Zaton newspaper. - The prestige of the event is high, it can be compared with our "Spasskaya Tower", the more pleasant this invitation. Our guys were not only the only participants from Russia, but also the youngest musicians. The remaining artists have long crossed the threshold of majority. The orchestra was received very warmly, the cadets even visited the mayor of Birmingham, were very pleased that they managed not only to perform at the festival, but also to see the city.

The “Birmingham Tattoo” festival has a 30-year history; the best representatives of military musical groups gather at it every year.
