Say [EAT DRINK WALK] to Moscow
Classical Music Tour with a Musician
Discover the music history of Saint Petersburg with a live tour guide, a musician who knows the local music scene inside out.
Meet your activity leader: Vadim
Hello! My name is Vadim. I am a clarinetist, who performs around Saint Petersburg and I would like to show you the city from a musicians perspective. I am proudly holding a degree from the Saint Petersburg State Conservatory and would like to share some historic facts and insights of Russian Classical music history.
What to expect
Saint Petersburg is home to various Russian classical music traditions. Most prominent musicians and composers lived and even studied here, names such as Modest Petrovich Musorgskiy, Mikhail Glinka (the author of first Russian Opera ever written), Nikolay Andreyevich Rimskiy-Korsakov, Mily Balakirev, Alexander Borodin, Alexander Dargomizhsky and many others!

We would start our tour from the museum of Musical instruments (ticket isn`t included in the tour) and see the unique artefacts and instruments of that era. For a deeper understanding of how Classical orchestra works we are expected to see how the instruments evolved with time. Then we would visit the flat of one of the most famous Russian composers and give a short look to the iconic Mariinsky theatre and Saint Petersburg State conservatory. I`d be delighted to show you the streets Russian composers walked, places they liked and, of course, Music Halls they undoubtedly performed.As a conclusive act, we will choose a classical music concert of your choice and head there.

Please be dressed "smart casual".
