The first orchestra created on the basis of the Philharmonic was a symphony orchestra, led by the famous Soviet conductor, teacher, Honored Artist of the RSFSR Ilya Alexandrovich Gitgarts.

During the war, philharmonic artists performed in hospitals and military units of the Soviet army as part of concert brigades, giving about a thousand concerts every year.

From the mid-1950s to the second half of the 1980s years the artistic direction of the Philharmonic was carried out by the outstanding figure of culture and art E.P. Ivanov. The director of the philharmonic society was V.E. Romanov.
