The year 2006 is when the choir is first invited to take part in the Europeade Festival. Subsequently, the “Symbol” choir enjoys great success at the 43rd edition of the festival that year in Zamora (Spain).

Also this year - in 2009 – part of the choir will go once again to Belgium for another Christmas tour in the Flemish region of the country and in Brussels. In the meantime the members of the choir who are staying at home will have traditional Christmas carols concerts in different locations (see "Events")
