The City of Astana was founded as the new capital of Kazakhstan after the collaps of the Soviet-Union. Within its twenty years of
existance it got already a high image due to its futuristic sky-line, its Global Summits supported by the group of Astana Nobel
Laureates and finally in 2017 by the EXPO.
For the 20th Anniversary of Astana in 2018 Sir Karl Jenkins , one of the greatest modern composers, created the oratorio "Shine
Astana" which was performed by a combination of 500 singers from choirs from 10 Silk Road countries and by 300 musicians. Its
premire took place at the First Silk Road Mayors Joint Conference which according to Prof.Dr.B.Hallier was a historic and cultural
highland for all the region.
