On 7 June, classical genre will be represented by one of the world’s leading classical opera tenors, Andrea Bocelli, along with a guest soprano, a celebrity opera singer, soloist of the Vienna Opera, Aida Garifullina. The concert will be held with the support of Tinkoff Bank, the general partner of the Forum.

On 8 June, classic and rock will come together on Palace Square: as part of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum Gala concert, the legendary rock band Bi-2 will perform, accompanied by the symphony orchestra conducted by the Merited Artist of Russia Felix Aranovsky. Thanks to their fruitful cooperation and friendship, the band and the famous conductor recorded the orchestral versions of the best Bi-2 hits, and they will present them to the public at the SPIEF culture festival.
