Christmas concerts of Udmurt Christian ensemble "Inkrezh" started on December 24 in Philadelphia church in Izhevsk and it gathered the Udmurts who are not indifferent to the destiny of their ethnic group and those who love Udmurt artwork. The songs and poems performed by Inkrezh’ ensemble were filled with joy of Christmas, which brought peace on earth to those on whom His favor rests. The guests of this celebration were Udmurt ensembles "Zador Mylkyd" and "Jardon" , they also performed Christmas songs from the "Inkrezh" repertoire. Youth Udmurt music group "Shumpoton" also performed their songs. The celebration ended with the prayer of repentance, worship and gratitude to God for the birth of Christ.

On January 3 and 4 "Inkrezh" ensemble continued its Christmas program in the Bashkir Republic. In the Udmurt villages of Novye Tatyshly, Vyazovka, Kalmiyar, Baltach of the Tatyshly region the news about miraculous birth of baby Jesus Christ who became the Savior of the world, the Shephard of all peoples and tribes, was celebrated. For the Bashkir Udmurts who follow their own traditional pagan religion, this Christmas news is not yet clear and close but many people there testified that this news touched their hearts and made them think about eternity. One of the culture workers from this region offered to come to them more often and to enlighten them with God’s word.   

After each concert, the people who came there got Christmas presents – the Bible in their own language. Every one of them received this present with big gratitude and awe. Praise God!
