Start the day at the Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory. It was founded in 1862 by composer Anton Rubinstein sitting behind me. Graduates include names we all know like Pytor Tchaikovsky, Sergey Prokofiev, George Balanchine and many others. In 2012 the conservatory will celebrate its 150th anniversary.
