The finest young musicians in Moscow are coming to Parkersburg.
The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin will appear in concert at 8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 10, in the College Activities Center at West Virginia University at Parkersburg. The orchestra is a full-time ensemble that performs an all-Russian program featuring works by Stravinsky, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky.
The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin is appearing at WVU Parkersburg as part of the college’s Distinguished Performance Series. In the past decade, under the direction of Misha Rachievsky, the orchestra has completed 16 European tours, and three visits to the Far East. This season marks its fifth tour of the United States.
The orchestra enjoys an enthusiastic and loyal following in Moscow, where its concerts are eagerly anticipated and quickly sold out. The ensemble has released 14 compact discs which have won critical acclaim and a number of international awards, including the Diapason d’Or in Paris, the Gramophone Critic’s Choice in London, and Record of the Year in Hong Kong.
Tickets for the concert are available in the college Business Office. They are $10 for adults; $5 for non-WVU Parkersburg students, and $2 in advance for WVU Parkersburg students. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door, beginning at 7 p.m. the night of the performance.
The DP Series is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History and National Endowment for the Arts with approval of the West Virginia Commission on the Arts, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the WVU Parkersburg student activity fee and academic affairs budget.
