Tbilisi wind festival

On 26 November with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Levan Tskhadadze - Tbilisi Wind Instrument Festival founder and artistic director officially opened the Festival in Rustaveli theatre.

Nice.
Levan is a founder and artistic director of Tbilisi Wind Festival, where he collaborates with such musicians as Radovan Vlatkovic, Michel Lethiec, Gustavo Nunez, Felix Renggli and Maurice Bourgue.
The main goal of Tbilisi Wind Festival is to raise the general level of the wind instrument school of Georgia and promote the rich repertoire of the wind instrumental music. The current session of the festival had the honor to host world class musicians, some of whom already participated in the previous gathering.
