"Vivaldi Orchestra" is a well-known Russian group under Svetlana Bezrodnaya. The prototype for it was the orchestra of the women‘s conservatoire in San-Pieta, Venezia, under the great Italian maestro Antonio Vivaldi.

"Vivaldi Orchestra" comprises 18 charming women who play violin, viola, cello and even double bass. On the stage they wear fancy dresses which remind audiences of the time of Vivaldi. Annually the orchestra gives over 100 concerts; musicians made many recordings and prepared several compact discs. A pleasant surprise for the admirers of the orchestra was a new album prepared jointly with the "Russky sezon", or Russian season, company. It comprises classical miniatures and popular tangoes of the 20th century.
