Orchestrina Armonia

The Orchestrina consists of ten musicians and each of them contributes their individual vision to the musical performance.

This unique ensemble combines symphonic musical instruments like the flute, clarinet, violin, cello, contrabass and percussion as well as Russian folk instruments - balalaika, domra, domra alto, bayan.

The idea of creating this team belongs to Alexander Chernobaev. The group of musicians is brought together by the unconventional vision of their profession and a constant search for new possibilities that makes the ensemble capable for mastering different genres and styles of musical performance.

Unusual instrumental composition provokes the process of creation - members of the ensemble Alexander Chernobaev and Sergey Volnukhin prepare interpretations for musical compositions by themselves.

Each musician of the team tends to depart from the stereotypes and usual roles in their musical performance.

That is the place of birth for new interpretations and associations. Constant search substantiates in realization here.
