Washington Balalaika Orchestra
--Russian Traditional String Orchestra
---Saturday, May 7, 2016
The balalaika, a traditional Russian stringed instrument with a triangular wooden body, is often referred to as the Russian three-string guitar. Considered a folk instrument in Russia, the balalaika was played at community and family gatherings rather than in the country’s esteemed concert halls. That changed in the late nineteenth century, when a wealthy violin student named Vasily Andreyev created the first Orchestra of Russian Folk Instruments. This balalaika-led folk orchestra became a great commercial success, and similar groups thrive in most Russian cities. These types of groups have expanded across the globe, but the largest balalaika orchestra outside of Russia is based in northern Virginia. The Washington Balalaika Society has enjoyed dedicated and enthusiastic membership support since its inception in 1988.
