Makhachkala, March 18, 2014. For the first time in Daghestan history, the oldest professional musical ensemble –Daghestan State Choir headed by L. Hanzhova – participated in the consolidated Russian Choir at the opening of the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi - a global event watched by both 40,000 spectators at the "Fischt" stadium and one billion TV viewers.

"A grand spectacle like this happens only once in your life. About 400 members of the choir, 26 Daghestan singers among them, represented the consolidated choir of Russia. Vladimir Putin’s welcoming speech, raising the national flag, and the choir’s a cappella singing of the national anthem inspired pride for our country, for our being a citizen of a great power. The audience was overwhelmed with warm feelings seeing the beautiful ceremony of opening the Paralympic Games with participation of athletes with disabilities, but strong in spirit," - says Hanzhova.

The consolidated choir included choral groups from various Russian regions: the Pyatnitskiy State Academic Russian Folk Choir, the Yurlov Moscow State Academic Choir of Russia, the Moscow State Academic Kuban Cossack Choir, the Kuban Cossack Choirs (Krasnodar), the Choir of the North Caucasus State Institute of Arts (Nalchik), the Rybin Male Chamber Choir (Moscow), the State Adygea Folk Ensemble "Islamei", the State Tatarstan Song and Dance Ensemble, the Folk Song Choir of the Alanya State Philharmonic, and the Daghestan State Choir.

The choir sang the Russian Anthem and the Russian folk song "Mother Russia". They showed 2 scenic images: during the national anthem they were in blue and white transformer outfits which they undid in the 2nd verse suddenly transforming into a colourful carpet of Russian folk patterns.
