In a time of uncertain future for US-Russia relations, it is best to remember that music and the arts can unite people all around in bonds of unbreakable friendship. Russian maestro Valery Gergiev conducted the world-famous Mariinsky orchestra at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC on Monday night. The concert is meant to be, in the words of philanthropist Susan Lehrman, an “event of cultural cooperation and dialogue.” RT America’s Manila Chan reports live from the venue.
