You can entertain yourself all day with sports, food, and dancing, but music always has the last word. It is what sets the mood for an event, and it is thanks to music that HSE Day is so memorable and full of emotion. At the Azhurnaya Rotunda, HSE Day guests will be able to watch special musical performances, while the event’s special guest will be giving a large concert at the Green Theatre in the evening.

Acoustics is an interactive plaground at HSE Day 2017 that will host acoustic performances and a poetry reading.
Acoustics will be the centre that brings creative young people together: new friends, a special home-like acoustic atmosphere and more than 30 people of talent from HSE.
