This unique ensemble, established by violinist Khachatur Almazian, cellist Tamara Savic and 20 attractive ladies with exceptional musical talent, was labeled by the media as the "New Classic for the New Millennium". Their repertoire, in classical crossover style, combines classical pieces in new arrangements, compositions written and dedicated exclusively to them, as well as some popular tunes.
