Generations X to Y:
A Concert of Classical Music

Generation X - a lost musical generation presents Generation Y, incredibly sophisticated, racially and ethnically diverse in musical interpretations. X and Y are now performing together! The Flying Balalaika Brothers of Generation X present the Klever Quartet from Generation Y.

The Klever Quartet was founded in 2013 by young musicians, individual competition winners now performing collaboratively. The Klever Quartet (Grigory Tadtaev, Vladimir Shulyakovsky, Kristina Vasilyeva, Igor Botvin) has been welcomed in more than 50 cities in Russia and abroad. This international ensemble brings together Ossetian, Russian / Polish, Belarusian, and Georgian performers who have been working closely with The People's Artist of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria Murat Kabardokov, a young and innovative composer. The first result of their collaboration was the CD "Without Words" for string quartet and piano. This work consists of original music composed to incorporate cinematic and classical styles.

This year the Klever Quartet will participate in several chamber music competitions, as well as the Leopold Auer Society project "Music for World Peace" in the United States.

The Flying Balalaika Brothers was created by two virtuoso Russian musicians who first combined classical training with folk traditions, later inviting American musicians to enhance the bands musical perspectives The Flying Balalaika Brothers have performed at the Gilroy Festival, the Sawdust Festival, the Valencia Street Market, the Pecan Street Festival, Music Under the Stars, and the Kerrville Folk Festival. They now perform in concert halls around the nation. This group features vocalist Zhenya Rock, balalaika, accordion, guitar, and banjo; Sergey Vashchenko, balalaika, bass, accordion; Aaryn Russell, guitar and bass balalaika; and Chris Hausler, drums.

Both The Klever Quartet and The Flying Balalaika Brothers perform from their love for traditional music and for classical elegance. Please join us for an innovative and exciting performance.

The City of Austins Cultural Arts Division, a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts have all helped make this event possible.

Advita Fund USA was founded in October 2007 (tax ID: 26-1300404).

Patients in Russia and the former Soviet Union face unique challenges:

  • lack of national bone marrow donor registry;
  • bureaucratic red tape that families have to struggle with to obtain governments treatment quotas;
  • lack of supporting medications that have to be purchased privately;
  • high cost of imported equipment and medications, and
  • inadequate federal financing of healthcare

As a result, thousands of children remain untreated, receive inadequate care, or run out of money long before the treatment is completed. While close to 80% of children with cancer are cured in the West, only 50% survive in Russian hospitals. We strive to close this gap.
Your donations are used to pay for bone marrow transplants, cancer drugs and supporting medications, and other necessary medical procedures.
The fund is staffed by volunteers only.
Thank you for your kindness!

Advita Fund USA is a volunteer-run organization - it means we pay no salaries to our staff and incur only minimal administrative expenses, so that most of the money we raise goes to patients we support.

You can make the donation at the ADVITA website
