March 7, 1969 - Moscow State Symphony
Under the direction of conductor Odissey Dimitriadi, the Moscow State Symphony played for 4500 spectators at Halenbeck Hall on March 7, 1969. Selections performed included "Scheherazade" and "Symphony No. 4." According to the March 11, 1969 edition of the College Chronicle, the audience showered appalause on the group throughout the performance. Support was so responsive, that "[i]f the orchestra had not left the hall after the third encore, the audience apparently would have stayed all night to listen."
