The orchestra of the Summer Ballet Seasons was created in 2002 specially to contribute the work of the project. For these years the orchestra, following the best music traditions, has formed its own style to perform ballet music which is well known among theatre audience and music lovers. Not only experienced musicians – representatives of main schools of mastery in Moscow – are working in the orchestra, there are also young performers, which were graduated from Moscow P.I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Gnesin Russian Academy of Music.

The orchestra of the Summer Ballet Seasons has repeatedly participated in tours of Russian ballet companies in USA, China, France, Germany. It was noted in foreign press that "orchestra is not only an accompaniment, but the full member of performance".
