The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is proud to kick off their 40th Anniversary season with The Russian String Orchestra on Wednesday, October 19 at 7pm in the Pinedale Auditorium.
"This will be a very special evening with a very special group," said Tim Ruland, PFAC Marketing/Outreach Director. "PFAC is an organization that so many of us have grown up with here in Pinedale and the fact that itís now celebrating 40 years is a testament to just how much itís valued in the community."
Founded in 1991, The Russian String Orchestra, comprised of some of Russia's finest young string players, has carved a niche for itself under the creative baton of its founder and music director Misha Rachlevsky. Whether it is their highly-acclaimed CDs or mesmerizing concerts, The Russian String Orchestra's warmth and high energy create addictive performances that stay with listeners long after the last note has been played.
About half of nearly 2,000 concerts the orchestra has performed to date have taken place in Moscow, the rest were played on tours in 24 countries in Europe, North and South America and the Far East. The orchestra's discography of over 30 CDs has received widespread international acclaim, such as the Diapason d'Or award in France, Critics Choice in London's Gramophone, Critics Choice in The New York Times, and Record of the Year award in Hong Kong.
