Kerensky orchestra
« on: December 31, 2012, 09:54:01 AM »
My family believe that my great uncle was a flautist in Kerensky's orchestra and the whole orchestra was short dead during the revolution.  Is there any way to verify any of this and has anyone else heard of this incident?

Did Kerensky have an orchestra?

Never heard about that.

Well I can't find any historical reference to it either but I expect that there is an element of truth in it and that the story has been distorted over time.  Maybe it wasn't under his control but it was an orchestra that played to some gathering he was at.
