"Musically superb!" ~Los Angeles Times.
The Los Angeles Balalaika Orchestra consists of 40 talented musicians who are interested in Russian folk instruments and their unique sound. The Orchestra prepares new material each year and performs an annual full concert in Los Angeles and San Diego. Featured artists are brought by the Orchestra from Kiev, Moscow, or St. Petersburg, Russia, and also include world class artists who now live in the Southern California area. The concert will also feature traditional Russian folk dancers and the gifted soprano Anna Belaya. The orchestra's professional directors and arrangers are Iryna Orlova and Anatoliy Mamalyga. Both are graduates of the famed Ukrainian National Tchaikovsky Academy of Music formerly known as the Kiev State (Tchaikovsky) Conservatory.
Proceeds from the concert will assist in the purchase of a concert grand piano for the Encinitas Community and Senior Center, for new artistic programming. For more information, please contact Jim Gilliam.
