The leadership of the festival, it should be noted, always with trepidation selects the Chairpersons of the competition jury. It should be superprofessionalnyh people plus absolutely incorruptible, having in this respect an impeccable reputation. So in past years, chairs of the competitions were Larisa Dolina, Polad bul-bul oglu. In this anniversary year, the position went to Valery Leontiev.
– I, frankly, don’t like to judge, – commented Valery Leontiev his agreement to head the jury, although and can. Need to do it at the contest “Crimea music fest” that was held in Yalta, on the “Main stage”. To deny the “Slavic Bazaar” I can’t, it’s my festival, I performed there countless times. Here, near the concert hall Vitebsk on the walk of Fame festival, laid my star. And in 1988 I opened this hall with his solo concert, even the bricks were damp. And what happened here concerts, when the hall had no roof and the sky would split the thunderstorms! And all the spectators sat under the open multicolored umbrellas. Before my eyes waved a sea of colorful umbrellas! So this festival for me the past and the future. Real cradle! As for “judging”… I can Not evaluate ourselves, but everyone says that I judge are very strict. Probably, the way it is. But, if I see that some do by God, that is, kissed, I will fight for him until the end.
