We hope that the winners concert and the award ceremony will take place as scheduled on April 3, 2021. In case the restrictions related to coronavirus pandemia are not lifted by that date, the event will be rescheduled.
But here is an exciting news!
During challenging times of COVID-19 our team is offering an opportunity to participate and compete at the Russian Music Award Online Competition, which will allow the winners to receive the awards by mail without attending the award ceremony. Participants who apply for Russian Music Award are eligible to receive monetary prizes.*
In the meantime, if the winners of online competition are willing to attend the winners concert, they will have the opportunity to do that and will be expected to perform at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia. To find more information about Russian Music Award Online Competition click
