TOMSK, Oct 13 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk Philharmonic is launching a new project Universitetsky Prospekt ("University Avenue") – a series of three youth concerts; the first will be held on Friday, musicians to play the favorite music of Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and other famous people, dressed in sneakers and sweatshirts, project author and conductor Vladimir Dorokhov told.

"The motto of this series of concerts is: "Sweatshirts and sneakers are welcome". That is, you can come in comfortable clothing, there is no dress code. The orchestra will also be dressed like that; we won't have anyone in a dinner jacket or a tailcoat including the conductor; I'll be in a hoodie, jogging trousers and trainers. We are trying to be close to the students; we all used to be students ourselves", – he said.

The University Avenue project is named after Lenin Avenue in Tomsk, where several large universities are located. So far, three concerts are planned: Great Students, Student Cafe, and Creditable Concert.

The first will be held on Friday, October 15, at 7 p.m. in the Great Concert Hall. On it, musicians will play the favourite music of famous people: Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Charles Darwin, Leo Tolstoy, Joanne Rowling, Dmitri Mendeleev and others. Audiences will hear compositions ranging from classics to jazz and rock, and get to know the greats from their "melomaniacal side".

"They were all students. Some people dislike being students, some like it, some took the good out of it, some changed their minds, but still, being a student is a stepping stone in life – no one would ever jump over it. There are many such people who entered one department, then realized that it wasn't theirs, and enrolled in another university at a completely different department", – Dorokhov said.
