Founded in 1995, Firebird is building a reputation as a unique, dynamic, and accomplished group of musicians performing on Russian traditional instruments.  These include the domra, a string instrument with a thin, fretted neck and round body first appearing in written records at the end of the 15th century; the balalaika, a triangular-bodied Russian instrument well known to Western audiences from the film Doctor Zhivago; and the bayan, a member of the accordion family popular in Russia and Ukraine.  Firebird's repertoire ranges from traditional Russian and Eastern European songs to well-known classics and works of contemporary composers.

Touring extensively in the US and abroad, the ensemble also performs for TV, radio, and films.  Firebird has appeared with great success at the John Anson Ford Amphitheater in Los Angeles, Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco, Fechin Institute in Taos, NM, Hoover Auditorium in Lakeside, OH, Luther Burbank Center in Santa Rosa, Pasadena Civic Auditorium, Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno, Sound of LA concert series at the Getty Museum, the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, and the Russian International Festival in San Francisco.
