RRI: Winners of the Contest “My Cultural Bucharest – from Radio Orchestras to Contemporary Art”

July 31st was the last day for submissions to our general knowledge contest entitled “My Cultural Bucharest–from Radio Orchestras to Contemporary Art”

The competition focused on Bucharest, a European-class cultural center, with emphasis on symphonic music and contemporary art. 

The first edition of the International Radio Orchestras Festival will take place between the 23rd and 29th of September, bringing together in Bucharest prestigious radio orchestras.

The festival will be held once every two years, and will not fall on the same years as the George Enescu International Festival. Another major event in Bucharest was the 5th edition of the Contemporary Art Biennial, held between May 25th and July 22nd. 20 international artists from 4 continents took part in the event, dubbed BB5.

We’ve received a lot of answers from our listeners – over 250 submissions with the right answers! 

We’d like to kindly thank all of you for participating, and be sure to do so again in our future contests!
