From The Past To Today - Part 1

The Beginnings Back In Russia
     Thanks to Anton and Misha Krutz, K.C Strings was established in 1992! Anton, the son of Misha, was born in Leningrad, Russia which is now known as Saint Petersburg---the next largest city in Russia after Moscow. With more than 80 concert halls and 100 concert organizations, this was a lively city to be born in as an artist!

     However, it wasn't just the city that had an impact on Anton and the path toward establishing himself as a Master Luthier in Kansas City. He was also born into a family with a rich lineage in music.
     Anton had two grandparents who were Leningrad conservatory graduates and parents who were both music majors. One of his grandparents, Lev Krutz who is pictured above, was a violinist with the Leningrad Symphony Orchestra. During one of the darkest hours of WWII, he participated in the historic debut of the Leningrad Symphony by Dmitry Shostakovich. This live broadcast inspired all of Russia!...
