On October 23, 2022, students from the Department of Media Technologies of the State University of Film and Television, St. Petersburg, traveled on an ethnographic TV expedition to Vyborg, Leningrad Oblast. As they toured the city, the highlight of their trip was a meeting with Darya Shkurlyatyeva, a member of Sts. Peter and Paul Lutheran Church of Vyborg, music journalist, church organist and head of the ELCIR Information Department.
At the Lutheran church which has a pipe organ the students learned about the basics of the organ art. Darya told them about the build of the organ and how it is played. She played several short music pieces as a demonstration. The students tried their hand at playing the organ, too.
The students will present their expedition reports and the videos they took at a public screening in mid-November.
