FC England: Concert in Jurmala

16 September 2016

Triple wow from our English Club! Fantastic trip to Jurmala, trip to Latvia and a meeting with Dima Bilan. Jurmala is a clean and pretty town adjoined by woods with an impressive long, clean, sandy beach. A lovely setting in which to organise a concert. 
This year the Dzintaru concert hall celebrates its eightieth birthday. During the week commencing 22 August 2016, B2, Kristina Orbakaitye and Dima Bilan all had concerts there. On Monday 22 August 2016 2 representatives of our English Club found themselves seated in this unique building enjoying a magnificent concert. Dima Bilan never fails to impress and never disappoints. There was a good natured atmosphere in the concert hall; so many flowers. The warm appreciation shown by the audience to Dima for his magnificent performance was something which left a deep impression. We have never seen a singer who comes close to Dima for talent, versatility and positive engagement with his audience. His rendition of the Alla Pugacheva hit "не отрекаются любя" was simply stunning. Prior to the concert, a journalist from the website VSEVSEGDAVEZDE interviewed representatives of our English Club. At the concert, a bouquet and card was presented to Dima on behalf of the English Club. 
We did manage to get a brief meeting with Dima. We had a short but congenial tete a tete with Dima, despite the fact that he must have been very tired after putting so much effort, energy and love into his concert. He is not only a talented artist but also one of the nicest, most modest, considerate and well mannered individuals, whom you could ever wish to meet. A national treasure. We thank him for the music and the meeting and wish him well in all his future projects. We hope that a trip to the UK is on the cards.
