Iveria has performed at many festivals and cultural events of St. Petersburg; they also received first place in awards and diplomas for the Days of Commemoration of 300 years of St. Petersburg. The ensemble's repertoire includes songs and dances from almost all regions of Georgia. Iveria is distinguished by its traditional, authentic approach which was the original mission of the ensemble.

Jeffrey Siegel Keyboard Conversations®
Concerts with Commentary
Jeffrey Siegel has been soloist with some of the world's greatest orchestras. In the United States, engagements include the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and others. Abroad, these include the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, Philharmonic and Philharmonia, Moscow State Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Stockholm Philharmonic, and many others. In addition to his solo appearances, Jeffrey Siegel presents Keyboard Conversations®, concerts with lively commentary in an innovative format that differs from traditional recitals and appearances with symphony orchestras. A Keyboard Conversation® is a concert with each work on the program performed in its entirety. Siegel speaks briefly and informally to the audience before performing each composition, illustrating with a few pertinent musical examples from the keyboard. The commentary makes the music more accessible and the listening experience more focused and meaningful for music lovers of all ages. Music teachers who purchase a ticket may request a complimentary ticket to bring a student to experience a Keyboard Conversation® concert.
