Chamber Orchestra to offer concert

The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin will perform on Valentine's Day in Troy. Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for children.

One of the world’s greatest chamber ensembles, the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin, led by Maestro Misha Rachlevsky will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the Troy University campus on Valentine’s Day.

Dr. John Jinright, presenter chair of the sponsoring Troy Arts Council, said Rachlevsky has been requested to include music for lovers on this very special day.

“Rachlevsky will share his 30 years of experience as the leader of one of the world’s great chamber ensembles with Troy University music students at 1 p.m. in Long Hall on Feb. 14,” Jinright said. “The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.”

The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin will also present a special student concert at 10:45 a.m. at Charles Henderson High School.

Jinright said the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has been critically acclaimed as one of the finest string ensembles in the world.

“Misha Rachlevsky has molded these young Chamber Orchestra Kremlin players into a sonorous whole, amazingly greater than the sum of its seventeen parts,” Jinright said. “Conducting with his eyes closed, Rachlevsky is connected like a wire to each of his players and pulls them from a flawless execution that astounds audiences the world over.”

Jinright said that Chamber Orchestra Kremlin is Rachlevsky’s creation and he has achieved the blending of both the incomparable historical character and the present day vitality of Russia’s musical talent.

General admission tickets for the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin concert are $20 and $5 for students. Admission is free for young children and Troy Arts Council patrons. Tickets will be available at the door.

The concert is present by the Troy Arts Council in cooperation with the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the Troy University College of Communication and Fine Arts.
