Now, along with recognized performers and virtuoso musicians, no less talented young Kazakhstanis, whose names are not yet known to the general public, are ready to share their creativity on the legendary stage of the SATOB. For many of them the performance on the big professional stage will be held for the first time. However, the Laureates of the Foundation of the First President – Honored Worker of the Republic of Kazakhstan, tenor Medet Chotabayev, the pianist-accompanist of the «Astana Opera» Gauhar Tasbergenova, flutist Zhibek Sapargaliyeva, the golden cello of Kazakhstan Yermek Kurmanayev, Honored Worker of the Republic of Kazakhstan, soprano Bibigul Zhanuzak, mezzo-soprano Tatiana Vitsinskaya, first violin of the «Astana Opera» Kalamkas Dzhumabayeva, and others.
