As part of the Northwest Oklahoma Concert Series, Chamber Orchestra Kremlin will take the Herod Hall stage at Northwestern Oklahoma State University on Thursday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at Holder Drug, Schuhmacher’s, the NWOSU Bookstore or by calling (580) 327-8692.

Founded in 1991 by music director Misha Rachlevsky, Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has gained a reputation across the world as featuring some of Russia’s finest young string players.

The group’s performances have been called “addictive” and are known to stay with
listeners long after the show is over.

The orchestra originated in Moscow, Russia, but performs regularly across North and South America, Europe and the Far East. On top of a packed touring schedule, Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has recorded more than 30 CDs and continues to grow a fan base across the world.

The group has been critically acclaimed as one of the finest string ensembles in Russia, and some argue that Chamber Orchestra Kremlin is the best in the world.

Rachlevsky formed a love for chamber music early in his musical career. He studied music at the College of Moscow Conservatory and the Gnessin Academy of Music. He was born in Russia and began studying violin at the age of 5, and has continued studying stringed instruments throughout his lifetime.

The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has earned international praise for its uniformity of performance, high energy and flawless execution.
