Sunday, 2 October 2016 will be remembered as a historical date, as this was the evening of our concert in tribute to the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, whose mandate will end on 31 December. The Orchestra gave a wonderful performance of an all-Tchaikovsky programme together with internationally renowned violinist Maxim Vengerov.
