Following interview and photo-session in NYC on March 5 to promote the upcoming USA tour, the orchestra will fly to Mexico, for concerts and masterclasses in Tlaquepaque, a charming city a few miles from Guadalajara, on March 7 and 8.  This will be the second visit by the orchestra to Mexico, and we all are very much looking forward to it!

Take a look at a little video from the afterconcert party - the Kremlin gals do know how to party!!!

COMING UP

Upcoming USA tour will be the 35th such tour for the orchestra since 1995.  As always, the orchestra offers a number of preset programs to select from (this time there were three) with countless options for the presenters to devise their own program from literally hundreds of available compositions.  This time, however, presenters exhibited rare unity in their approach to programming -- all, but one (for the last concert of the tour) selected the same program!  Additional solo works provide an added measure of variety and excitement.
