At the "Music is Timeless" concert and festival at the Church of Scientology Moscow December 18, artists from 12 distinct ethnic traditions performed a living demonstration that music can unite peoples and transcend cultural differences.
Moscow, Russia, December 27, 2016 (Newswire.com) - The Church of Scientology Moscow hosted a concert and festival December 18 of ethnic music representing a dozen cultural traditions.
“Music is Timeless” was co-organized by the Church of Scientology and the Centre of Preservation and Development of Cultures of the Peoples of the World.
The musical mosaic represented cultural traditions of Altai, Armenia, Bashkortostan, Buryatia, Czech Republic, Kalmykia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Tyva.
The Church screened several brief videos from The Way to Happiness, a moral code written by humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard that also transcends ethnic and religious differences with its common-sense precepts.
“The language of music knows no boundaries,” said a Moscow lawyer who attended the program. “It unites peoples of different countries and believers of all faiths.”
An advisor to a deputy of the State Duma commented on the richness of the ethnic traditions represented.
Guests and performers toured the Church’s Public Information Center and learned more about Mr. Hubbard, The Way to Happiness and other humanitarian programs the Church supports that address and resolve social issues affecting all countries and cultures today.
