American Balalaika Symphony
On the 16th January, 2010, I was asked to photograph the American Balalaika Symphony who were performing at the Strathmore. Make sure you try and catch one of their shows as they were absolutely fantastic.
Combining the rich traditions of the Russian Music School with the best of European and American music, founder, artistic director, and conductor Peter Trofimenko has created a unique American orchestra. Matched against 33 others in the performing arts, the American Balalaika Symphony was selected as the winner of the Great Strathmore 25th Anniversary Giveaway competition. ABS will perform in the Music Center on January 16, 2010.
Here are some images from the event shot with the available light in the concert hall with my Canon 5D mark II with the 24-70 F/2.8L and the 70-200 F/2.8L IS.
