"Volny Chor" Foundation
On the basis of the "Volny Chor" public movement, the "Volny Chor" Foundation was established in December 2021.

On the basis of the Foundation, the "Belarusian School of Arts named after M. Ravensky" was created and is successfully developing.

The activity of "Concordia Choir" has resumed - the collective, which existed in Belarus since 2007, was forced to suspend its activities in 2020, as it was blacklisted due to the active political position of its members. Since 2021, he has revived his activities in Warsaw and continued his mission of developing and popularizing Belarusian choral culture. During this time, he has already become a participant in a number of international projects and festivals, as well as a winner of the International Choir Festival. Concordia Choir's activities are aimed at performing professional academic Belarusian choral music, building creative bridges, and creating new musical projects.
