Students Attend Renowned Orchestra Performance At No Charge

Geneva Concerts, Inc. Brings Chamber Orchestra Kremlin to Geneva

January 5, 2000 Geneva, NY – Geneva Concerts, Inc will bring Chamber Orchestra Kremlin to the Smith Opera House at 8:15 p.m. on Friday, January 14. Under the direction of Music Director Misha Rachlevsky, the orchestra will perform Grieg's “Holberg Suite”; “Visions Fugitive” by Prokofiev; and “Serenade for Strings” by Tchaikovsky.

Because of Hobart and William Smith Colleges' continuing subscription to Geneva Concerts, Inc., students from the Colleges who wish to attend the concert may do so for free. Tickets are available at the Office of Student Life and Leadership or at The College Store.

Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has emerged as one of Russia's leading formations since its founding in 1991 by Misha Rachlevsky. The orchestra enjoys an enthusiastic and loyal following in Moscow and is rapidly gaining devotees in all parts of the world where it performs – from New York to Hong Kong, London to Los Angeles, Istanbul to Munich, Amsterdam to Seoul. In its two USA tours during the 1998-99 season, Chamber Orchestra Kremlin performed more than 50 concerts.

The Los Angeles Times wrote of one performance: “No less than five encores were called for and played willingly and received with delight. What led up to this end was an impressive and serious display of musicianship.”
