The final stage of the festival's program was a musical concert, which began with a flag parade of Latin American countries. The variety of cultures was represented by national songs, dances and poems performed by students. The musical composition "Million Voices" performed in Russian marked the unity of Latin American students studying at Lobachevsky University.
