The performers of this concert are all graduates of leading Russian music colleges who have won prizes and awards for their performances and commitment to music. It will be the first time they have performed together in Taunton.
Sergei Kosov, the balalaika player will be travelling from Russia especially for the group’s February tour. During his performing career he has worked with many traditional folk orchestras in Russia, USA and Germany. Ukranian born, Iryna Ilnystska established her operatic career first in Kiev but after moving to England she has played various solo roles including taking part in ‘The Magic Flute’ with Somerset Opera. Their program will include music by Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Siviridov, whose delightful music has yet to be discovered by many people in Western Europe.
Tea and cakes will be available
