Chichba Baras Kudzhba and seventh grade student Maria-Emilia Terzyan-Hagba.

Olga Hagba-the Honored Artist of the Republic of Abkhazia and teacher of Sukhum State Musical College named after A. Chichba.

“Our participation in the festival has its own background. Last September, professors from Moscow Conservatory came to Abkhazia with master classes. Baras Kudzhba and Emilia Terzyan-Hagba were selected to take part at the abovementioned festival. The competition will be difficult, I am more than sure that our children will present Abkhazia with a great dignity,”-said Ninel Bzhania.
