    THE LOS ANGELES BALALAIKA ORCHESTRA PRESENTS 25TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT.  

As The Los Angeles Balalaika Orchestra looks back on 25 seasons of music-making, it marks two and half eventful decades of memorable concerts and artistic growth under the guidance of our directors, Iryna Orlova and Anatoliy Mamalyga. We remember also a host challenges, including the Great Recession, events larger than any of us, that have threatened our very existence. But each year we have come back, come back re-inspired by our instruments and the music, re-dedicated to our mission to sustain a world-class Balalaika Orchestra here in Los Angeles.

One more things, however, keeps us in the game: the support and appreciation of our audience. We know only one way to express our gratitude... with music. This year's concert features a completely new program and soloists guaranteed to surprise and delight everyone. Join us this year to celebrate our past and dedicate our future.


Peter Rothe

President,
The Los Angeles Balalaika Orchestra

One of the days of autumn 2010 we received a call inviting us to participate in the production of Bernard Rose's new film, "Two Jacks". Since the film was to be based on Leo Tolstoy's short story "Two Hussars", Bernard had a notion to include in it, some Russian music. Vernon made arrangements for us to meet Bernard and Julia, to introduce ourselves and our music to them. We met at the beautiful and cozy house on Kings Rd. and played a few arrangements from our repertoire.


PETER OMELCHENKO


Los Angeles balalaika orchestra

Mr. Omelchenko studied at Moscow's Gnessin Academy in the special class of Alexander Tsygankov, who particularly recognized the heartfelt character and distinctive timbre of Peter's domra technique. While still a student, Peter won significant awards at many prestigious competitions, such as the "Cup of the North" in Cherepovets, and before joining the Osipov orchestra, he was a member of the Nekrasov Radio and Television Folk Instrument Orchestra...
