Campus 2008
Russia

Being the -so far- most traditional Campus orchestra, the Anton Rubinstein Orchestra of the St. Petersburg Conservatory was invited in 2008. Founded in 1862, Anton Rubinstein was the conductor up until 1871, when it was taken over by Nicolai Rimski-Korsakow, and later from Davydov and Glazunov.
After a break that lasted several years, the orchestra was reformed in 2000. The implementation of this project made it possible for students to make music under the direction of leading Russian and international conductors.
The Anton Rubinstein Orchestra has taken part in many Russian and international festivals. The orchestra has been hosted by Germany, France, Italy, the Czech Republic and Lithuania and ahs graced some of the most famous Russian and European stages under the direction of conductors like Mariss Jansons, Vasilij Sinaskij, Alexander Titov and Alexander Sladkovsky. In 2005, the orchestra accompanied Lucciano Pavarotti during his concerts in St. Petersburg.
