The Carson City Symphony Association is working on a special project in March involving some very fine Russian performers, the Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet from St. Petersburg, Russia.

The Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet, formed in 1939, is a monument of Russian musical history. Composed of four graduates from the prestigious St. Petersburg Conservatory, they regularly perform in the most reputable festivals in Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Malta, England, Switzerland and Finland. Their varied repertoire, ranging from Russian music of the 19th and early 20th centuries to contemporary composers, is enthusiastically enjoyed by a wide range of audiences.
