Musicians are active in quartets and chamber music, and serve as faculty of local conservatories.

Under the artistic direction of Professor Irakli Gogibedaschwili, during its 20 year history, the orchestra has performed more than 700 concerts in many parts of the world, including Europe, the USA, Central and South America, Brazil, Russia and Israel.
