Kamerata Kronstadt is a new young and dynamic chamber orchestra that originated from love and dedication to music, thus developing an ambitious cultural project, full of energy and love for the audience. The members of the orchestra were chosen considering their interest in chamber music, as they are also performers in various Brasov orchestras. Under Cristian Orosanu’s guidance, Kamerata Kronstadt invited the audience in Brasov to a series of concerts during its first three seasons - an event where special soloists also attended, including violinists Alexandru Tomescu, Razvan Stoica, Gabriel Croitoru, Stefan Tarara or Rebekka Hartmann, pianist Horia Mihail, cellist Razvan Suma, lyrical artists Leontina Vaduva and Robert Nagy, but also the less classic musicians Alexandra Fits and Analia Selis. Kamerata Kronstadt supports both social and educational projects in Brasov, by performing charity or exclusively dedicated to children concerts, in order to bring the young audience in Brasov closer to the music.
