Meet OSC: Concertmaster Dmitri Pogorelov

Meet OSC: Concertmaster Dmitri Pogorelov

Violinist and Concertmaster Dmitri Pogorelov brings a wide world of experience to all of his performances, the result of a journey as broad geographically as it has been musically. His journey to becoming the Concertmaster of the Oistrakh Symphony of Chicago began in his native Russia, where at an early age he won a number of prestigious solo and chamber music competitions. He has performed extensively with orchestras in the USA, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, and Russia, and in chamber music concerts with many of the finest musicians in the world. As we look forward to Giving Tuesday, we wanted to ask some of the members of the Oistrakh Symphony community to tell us about what they feel that music has given to them. What Dmitri had to say was not only insightful, but quite inspiring as well.
