New to Classical Music? Here’s a Great Chance to Experience it Live – Guest Blogger and Intern Sarah Brunner


The St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the top orchestras in the world – recognized for its full sound, driven by the string and horn sections. So many people have experienced this orchestra live, and that is truly what it is: an experience. The rich, blended sounds purely establish a connection between the music and each listener. Music, in its’ purest form, is capable of evoking a wide range of emotions based on the life and personal experience of everyone – classical music may be the most complex to create, but at the same time it is the most universal to relate to.

This particular performance features Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 and Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2, and will be directed by one of the most recognized conductors in the world, Yuri Temirkanov. For those of you that have never been to a live orchestra performance before, consider this an opportunity of a lifetime – an opportunity to de-stress and relax, full of love, contemplation, joy and anything in between. Temirkanov has been leading the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra for over 25 years and has reached out in this way to millions of people.

For those new to classical music, thinking back on experiences that have impacted you – did any of them occur because of an optimistic decision you made? Even if you’re on the fence about classical music, deciding to experience classical music could make a meaningful impact in your life. Do something different, adventure into the unknown, take a chance on something new – the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra is the perfect opportunity.
