From 1860 the theatre orchestra began its independent concert life and held symphony music concerts conducted by Shenning and Catani. Together with the orchestra there were the greatest performers on the stage, among them Teresa Stolz, Feodor Chaliapin, a brilliant pianist Arthur Rubinstein, a Russian composer and a virtuoso pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff and a great Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky, who visited Georgia five times (1886-1890), and who appreciated deeply the orchestra and the theatre company.
