On March 22-28, Jerry Chae (Clarinet – USA) and Andrey Vinichenko (Piano – Russia) performed a classical concert tour throughout the Russian Far East. An enthusiastic Russian public warmly welcomed the musicians in Khabarovsk, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, and Vladivostok, the latter of which hosted the duo as part of the Philharmonic’s classic music festival “Far Eastern Spring.” This tour of musical diplomacy brought these American and Russians musicians and a unique musical experience to the people of the Russian Far East. The duo also conducted several master-classes for music schools and art colleges in Khabarovsk and Vladivostok, interacting with and inspiring young musicians while sharing their personal musical success stories.
