This year the entire musical world celebrates the 145th-year anniversary of the greatest Russian-American pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninoff, who's life path is still inseparably associated with the city of Los Angeles.

The competition will take place at the concert hall of historical Holy Virgin Mary Cathedral in Silver Lake - one of the oldest Russian religious and cultural centers in the United States. Rachmaninoff was a parishioner of the Cathedral during his entire stay in Los Angeles. 

The Cathedral became a permanent home for one of his grand pianos, and this particular instrument will be generously offered to perform for the finalists of the Competition!

Opening of the Museum in Los Angeles

The opening of the museum of Holy Virgin Mary Russian Orthodox Cathedral (Orthodox Church in America) started with an exhibit, "Outlook on Life: Several Generations of the Russian Noble Family Golitsyn," which took place on July 15, 2018.

This exhibit became inaugural in the newly opened museum at the cathedral. Rector of the Cathedral Father Nazari Polataiko allocated one of the halls for the museum, where the display is held. The hall is quite spacious and gathered about 50 people for the opening of a unique exhibit.

Among the sponsors of the exhibit there were the Parish Council and public organizations, such as the Russian Children's Aid Society, Western American Department of the Russian Imperial Union and Russian Noble Assembly, as well as the Department of the Congress of Russian Americans.
