Sofia Gubaidullina Centre of Contemporary Music

The Sofia Gubaidullina Centre of Contemporary Music combines creative, educational and research aspects in its work. Outreach programmes for children and youth, including inmates of children’s homes, is a priority line of the centre’s activities.

The Sofia Gubaidullina Centre hosts a variety of contemporary music festivals and concerts. Gigs and meetings with various audiences – the Europe-Asia International Festival, MUS-Transit International Festival, Classical Guitar in the 20th Century International Festival – are held at the small hall and museum rooms of the centre, as well as at other concert halls of Kazan.

One of the centre’s key projects is Music World with Sofia Gubaidullina, an educational programme designed to cater for the needs of diverse and demanding audiences, with a tour of the museum rooms where the great composer lived and wrote music, documentaries and live music.

In 2012, the Kazan 2013 Executive Directorate and the Sofia Gubaidullina Centre of Contemporary Music signed an agreement which provides for a number of joint events and activities aimed at promoting the values of the 27th Summer Universiade among intellectuals and the younger generation.
