About the “De Boni Arte” charitable foundation

The “De Boni Arte” foundation celebrates its 20th anniversary on December 25, 2021!
All these years we have tried to make the world a little more humanistic and beautiful by means of music. We have organized more than 3000 musical events, the proceeds from which went to scholarships for students and support for young musicians in need. Free tickets to our events are distributed to thousands of people through various social organizations.
We are happy to have been able to contribute to the development of organ culture in Russia. We raised funds to repair the Kuhn organ in the Moscow Catholic Cathedral, brought several “kings of musical instruments” to Russia, held a series of competitions, and organized training courses and workshops for beginners and professional organists.
We promote intercultural and ecumenical dialogue making the treasures of the European sacred music tradition available to the people of Russia.
We care about authenticity and wish everyone who is familiar with this tradition only theoretically (or not familiar at all) to see its centuries-old beauty. At the same time, we remain open to changes and experiments which help to demonstrate that the tradition is always young.
We have recorded hundreds of audio tracks and musical videos, published scores and Gregorian chant teaching materials.

And we did all this together with you, our dear guests, friends and partners! We did it! And we hope we will go on.
Thank you all!
