Musicians from Bashkiria will study at Gnessin Russian Academy of Music

The Ministry of Culture of Bashkortostan has agreed with the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music.

At the ongoing Baltic Cultural Forum, the corresponding agreement was signed by the Minister of Culture, Amina Shafikova, and the rector of the Academy, Doctor of Arts, Professor Alexander Ryzhinsky.

“We are starting work on targeted recruitment of musicians from our republic to study at the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music. Our musicians will enroll in state-funded education for targeted places allocated to the regions based on a general competition. The target place means that after graduation, the graduate will have to return to work in his native republic,” Amina Shafikova explained to Bashinform News Agency.

Also, according to the minister, methodological work is planned with Moscow University, holding master classes.

“The priority for us remains the training of personnel in the leading art universities of the capital. Two years ago, a course of young actors who studied at the Higher Theater School of Shchepkin returned to Ufa and joined the ranks of our theaters. In March, a cooperation agreement was signed with the Russian Institute of Theatrical Arts - GITIS,” reminded the Minister of Culture.

Amina Shafikova, at the Baltic Cultural Forum, shared the republic's experience in working with graduates of educational institutions of culture and art. As a result of the forum, Bashkortostan was noted as an example of organizing systematic work to provide creative personnel.
