Giorgi Ramishvili: I am happy that we have laid a foundation of Tsinandali Festival that is to continue Tsinandali history, the history of rapprochement of European and Georgian cultures. We implement both musical and educational initiatives. We express our deepest gratitude to Government of Georgia, personally Prime Minister. Without his personal support we would not be able to implement this project.
