A return journey to the world’s largest arts festival
In August, Misha Rachlevsky and the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin, known internationally as the Russian String Orchestra, will make a third visit to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival with over 3,000 shows covering music, theatre, dance, circus, comedy and cabaret.
Their previous visits in 2017 and 2018 proved a huge success with audiences and critics alike, with several five star reviews. In 2017 they won a highly prestigious “Herald Angel” Award, one of only 18 given out across the entire Fringe and International Festival; while in 2018 they won one of seven “Spirit of the Fringe” awards presented by Fringe legend, Mervyn Stutter.
This year they will perform seven evening concerts in the magnificent surroundings of Old Saint Paul’s, one of Edinburgh’s most historic and atmospheric churches, together with daily afternoon concerts (under their alter ego of “Misha’s Gang”) from 2nd to 24th August.
Before leaving for Edinburgh, the orchestra will give three special Bon Voyage! performances (showcasing some of their Edinburgh works) in the intimate surroundings of Art-Centre Exposed at 31G Shabolovka Street.
These will take place on:
July 18th, Thursday, 20.00
July 23d, Tuesday, 20.00
July 27th, Saturday, 17.00
Each of these concerts will be followed by an informal drinks reception, with the opportunity to meet the Founder and Music Director, Misha Rachlevsky, and other members of the orchestra.
