Moreover, a charity fair of jewelry and stonework by St. Petersburg's best craftsmen will be held to support young talents studying at the music school of the St. Petersburg conservatory which was founded on the initiative of the Russian Music Society.

The society's anniversary is marked in the Constantine Palace because before the 1917 revolution the Russian Music Society was headed by its former owners, Grand Prince Konstantin Nikolayevich Romanov, his wife Alexandra Iosifovna and their son Konstantin Konstantinovich.
