The Wider Image: Musicians fleeing Russia find a new audience in Georgia
A viola sits in its case before the first rehearsal with the small symphonic orchestra of Russian musicians that Alexei Antropov, 29, is trying to build in Tbilisi, Georgia, December 26, 2022. Antropov is keeping his passion alive and has gathered a small group of classical musicians 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.
