The name of the collective was determined by the repertoire policy: the performance of rarely sounding works of different musical styles and eras, attention to the works of contemporaries. The bright pages of the collective's life of this period are associated with the name of the remarkable conductor Eduard Serov, who led the orchestra for over 10 years.
