I welcome you to the Russian Chamber Music Foundation of Seattle. Since our inaugural concert in February of 2008, we have delivered four years of exciting evenings of Russian chamber music. In three years, we have brought many wonderful musicians from New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Oregon, as well as from Canada and England, to join the best of local artists to continue and expand our presentations of Russian chamber music. There have been moments of lyricism, drama, happiness, and sadness, which have created a broad spectrum of emotions for the listener. Our programs have included the well-known Russian composers as well as some composers not so widely known. Our goal in each concert is to mix the beloved and familiar music together with some pieces that will hopefully stretch the audience members to expand their knowledge and love of the rich Russian music repertoire.
It is a great privilege for me to work with a very high level Board of Artistic Advisors who help with their advice and artistic ideas, as well as the Board of Directors, volunteers and donors who help move this exciting project forward. Our future will be a beautiful journey of performances and educational opportunities through the gift of music!
