Fodor's Expert Review Murmansk Philharmonic
Established in 1975, the philharmonic serves as Murmank's main music space. Throughout the year, the calendar is filled with musical performances from baroque to contemporary by the theater's own orchestra or visiting musicians from other parts of Russia and abroad. Other types of music get regular attention as well, including flamenco, folk, and jazz. The hall itself, however, remains classically but charmingly Soviet in style, with light teal walls separated by white pilasters and simple cushioned-wood seats.
