Traditionally, the academic year at VSU concluded with a memorable musical event, the Voronezh Academic Symphony Orchestra of the Philharmonic Hall, led by maestro Igor Verbitsky, gave a concert for the staff of Voronezh State University. The moderator of the concert was the art historian, Professor Bronislav Tabachnikov.
