When you hear the word ‘orchestra’, you probably imagine an elderly director angrily swinging a baton, as if it were a magic wand and he was trying to turn someone into a mushroom. You would probably also picture musicians in long black robes, far removed from earthly life, and endless sounds of music, punctuated every so often by deathly silence.
You may also think that someone who studies at the Higher School of ECONOMICS can’t be a MUSICIAN. No, no, and no!
We are a young team of strong and ambitious personalities led by an enthusiastic captain – director Vladimir Yatskevich. And music is what inspires us to grow and move forward!
We strongly believe that music is the voice of the soul, so we don’t limit ourselves in any way. The instrument and music you play don’t matter; what’s important is that you sincerely love what we do and are able to contribute to our joint work. This is the ultimate purpose of our student association.
Hard work, optimism, and creativity are the main qualities that will make you an excellent musician.
Playing at an orchestra isn’t always easy, but it is always thrilling!
