The Wider Image: Musicians fleeing Russia find a new audience in Georgia
A musician plays clarinet before the first rehearsal with the small symphonic orchestra that Alexei Antropov, a fellow musician from Moscow, is trying to build in Tbilisi, Georgia, December 26, 2022. Antropov, 29, is keeping his passion alive and has gathered a small group of classical musicians from Russia with a view to performing in Tbilisi and possibly Yerevan, the capital of neighbouring Armenia. "I do not have an orchestra now," Antropov told Reuters. "So I am building my own." REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov SEARCH "SHEMETOV GEORGIA MUSICIANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
