A Romantic concert in the Embassy

Maria KONOSHENKO, whose name you discovered last week through our previous post has opened a new dimension of her talent. On January 28 the senior researcher took the stage of the Embassy halls in Matam presenting a solo concert to the audience of Russians living in Conakry as well as her numerous Guinean friends.

The guests got a chance to admire several Russian romances splendidly interpreted by this mezzo soprano with a doctorate degree. What a pleasant surprise for all of us proud to have had with us such an extraordinary fellow countrywoman !
