EMMA Concert Series presents The Russian State Symphony Orchestra in concert on February 8, 2020. The States Symphony Capella of Russia, also known as the Russian State Symphony Orchestra, ranks among the finest Russian symphony orchestras of the 21 st century.
Founded in 1957 within the All-Union Broadcasting System, the orchestra’s first music director was Samosud. Later, such renown conductors as Aranovich, Shostakovich, and Rozhdestvensky were among the orchestra’s artistic directors. In the early 90s, Maestro Polyansky took over the position of the artistic director and chief conductor.
When Maestro Polyansky took over, the orchestra was known as the State Symphony Capella of Russia, the organization that also included a very well internationally recognized choral entity – the State Capella of Russia. The merger of these two independently run music organizations always fascinated Maestro Polyansky. It was up to him how to choose the right repertoire for both the orchestra and the choir, something he has been doing very successfully for several decades.
EMMA is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that features high-quality music and dance performances throughout the year.
