The State Chamber Orchestra of the Republic of Belarus (BSCO) was founded in 1968, under the name of "Minsk Chamber Orchestra," by a well-known musician Oleg Yanchenko, an organist, composer and conductor.
For twenty-five years the orchestra was lead by Yury Tzyriuk, who came from the Minsk and St.Petersburg (then Leningrad) Conservatories. The highest performing achievements of the ensemble are associated with his name.
In 1975, the orchestra received great accolades at the International Festival of Chamber Orchestras in Vilnius, Lithuania, where it was proclaimed to be one of the very best ensembles of the then Soviet Union.
In 1977, the orchestra won the All-Union competition of the Professional Performing Ensembles. The Chamber Orchestra has performed in such halls as the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatoire, The Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg, and all main halls of the capital of the former USSR.
In 1977, the State Chamber Orchestra was the very first of all Belarusian professional ensembles chosen to tour Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Bulgaria. The tour was a resounding success. Since then, the orchestra has toured Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Finland, Lebanon, Turkey, and many other countries.
The orchestra enjoys performing extensively in its native Belarus, and there is not a place on the Belarusian map where the orchestra has not performed. In fact, BSCO was instrumental in establishing chamber orchestras in many Belarusian cities, such as Grodno, Brest, Gomel, Molodechno, and others.
Conductor: Igor Bukhvalov
