Siberian Virtuosi, the State Ensemble of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Northeastern Russia, is an ensemble of 12 violinists and a pianist gaining increasing popularity around the world.

The ensemble was chosen to represent Russia in the cultural program of the “EXPO 2010” in Shanghai. In 2005, the ensemble performed in Paris at the invitation of The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the European Union. The year prior, the ensemble’s 10 year anniversary tour to major Russian cities was broadcast in over 150 countries.
