Founded in 1995, Firebird is a unique, dynamic, and accomplished group of musicians performing on Russian traditional instruments. These include the domra, a string instrument with a thin, fretted neck and round body first appearing in written records at the end of the 15th century; the balalaika, a triangular-bodied Russian instrument well known to Western audiences from the film Doctor Zhivago; and the bayan, a member of the accordion family popular in Russia and Ukraine. Firebird’s repertoire ranges from traditional Russian and Eastern European songs to well-known classics and works of contemporary composers. Touring extensively in the US and abroad, the ensemble also performs for TV, radio, and films.

Please note: Pre-registration tickets for the first 110 seats of Thursday’s concert are no longer available. An additional 20 seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and any unclaimed seats will be released 10 minutes before the concert begins.
