’The girls have tough rehearsal days behind them: Not much time is left now – and we will know the long-awaited name of the winner’, said Tatyana KLIMOVA, Head of the Department of the Ethnocultural Development of the Ministry of the Permian Komi District, at the press conference at the State Regional Cultural Institution “Permian Komi Ethnocultural Centre“. ’Certainly, we would like to have one of our Permian Komi contestants – Anastasia Utrobina or Ekaterina Zhukova – as a person, who will celebrate her success, like it used to be last time in Syktyvkar in 2009. However, the competition will be everything but easy – Ksenia Vorontsova from Udmurtia, Nina Tarabukina from the Republic of Komi, Saami Yulia Barakovskaya from the Murmansk Region, Moksha Daria Uchvatova from Mordovia, Mari Natalia Spiridonova from the Perm Region, and Miss Estonia – 2011 Madli Vilsar!’
Within the tough working schedule of the preparation stage, participants trained common numbers, worked at solo performances, learnt defile technics and address on stage; portfolio photos as well as videos of numbers were shot, too. One day before the Final, girls will have last opportunity to correct their performances and try the designers’ collection from a “Northstar“’s partner – the Agency “Great Model“ (Perm). However, the upcoming event is not only a beauty show but also a humanitarian action.
’For me as a person with rich experiences in volunteers’ work, and at the “Red Cross“ Organization in particular, the social background of such contests is extremely vital’, confessed Madli VILSAR. ’That is why I would be glad to help the Perm Children’s Oncological Centre and take part in an auction, which will be carried out within the “Northstar“ Competition on December 6th as a support for the institution. I am convinced that this charity action will help fighting the disease and necessarily improve authority of the anticipating event’.
The Final of the Contest “Northstar 2011” will be held on December 7, 2011, at 6 p.m., at the Cultural and Business Centre of the City of Perm. For residents of the Permian Komi District, who wish to visit the event, free shuttle buses for the route Kudymkar-Perm-Kudymkar will be provided (departures from the capital of the Permian Komi District at 6 a.m. and 1 p.m.).
