This autumn Lomonosov MSUBS has held the International Festival and Fair for the second time. The idea of the Festival is to acquaint students with the culture and traditions of each other’s nations and to support a multicultural atmosphere at the Business School.
This year eleven teams representing different Russian regions and countries of the world took part in the Festival. Creative performances of the United States, Israel, Kazakhstan, Chechnya, France, Vietnam, Dagestan, Georgia, Sweden, Estonia and the City of Moscow teams were accompanied by dances, folk songs, and stand up comedy show as well as by national cuisine flavours, as the preparation of traditional dishes is an important part of the Festival. The guests of the Festival not only enjoyed watching the impressive students’ performances and tasting delicious food, but also could experience being spectators of famous The Voice Kids TV show as its participant from Chechnya, Rayana Aslanbekova, joined the MSUBS Festival.
The winner of this exciting competition was Moscow City team. Due to the extraordinary presentation and bright dances the participants of the team won the gold in the intense competition. The prize fund was donated to the Independent Noncommercial Organisation “Hospital clowns”, thereby making the beginning of numerous charity actions organized by the students within the Giving Tuesday.
We believe that the vivid memories of the Festival will remain forever in participants’ minds, and the tradition of conducting the International Festival will continue in the following year.
