On 7 September 2016, a charity concert organised by the vocal studio of the famous teacher and singer Claire McCartin, sponsored by the European Foundation for Support of Culture and the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in Malta was held in Russian Centre for Science and Culture.
In the late 80's of the last century Claire McCartin was one of the first students of the Russian language courses in Malta, then continued her studies in Russia. A lot of songs in her repertoire are in the Russian language. In the year 2010, Claire McCartin represented Malta in the Eurovision song contest. Friendship between Claire and Russia continues for many years, and annual concert of the students of her vocal studio is traditionally held in RCSC.
Popular songs of well-known western artists, as well as Russian romances were performed during the concert.
The whole fund raising will be transferred to Malta Hospice Movement.
