The Saint Petersburg Conservatoire

The Saint Petersburg Conservatoire Students Symphony Orchestra was recreated in 2004 after a long interruption in order to provide orchestral practice for students. The orchestra is made up mostly of first-year students in the orchestra department, and provides a place where the students can perfect their skills under the direction of well-known conductors. In the short time since its reinstitution, the orchestra has prepared a few interesting and conscientious programs with the participation of conductors such as Vasily Sinaisky, Alexander Titov, Alexander Sladkovsky, and Alim Shakhmametev. The Students Orchestra has enjoyed success at various music festivals and accompanied Lucciano Pavarotti in his Saint Petersburg concerts.
