The Brighton & Hove Russian choir http://russianchoir.wordpress.com/ is looking for more sopranos.
Sopranos for The Brighton & Hove Russian Choir
No auditions, no knowledge of Russian language is required. The choir is open to all.
The choir promotes Russian harmony singing and traditional Russian repertoire: lyrical and epic songs, ritual calendar music for pagan holidays, wedding songs and weeping songs, Russian Orthodox church music, classical XIX century romance.
Everything is sung in Russian but we carefully translate the texts and talk about the history and context of each piece. Cyrillic script, transliteration and translation are all available.
The group brings together music lovers of all backgrounds and singing levels with or without any knowledge of Russian language and culture.
Please get in touch via http://russianchoir.wordpress.com/contact/
Russian folk and classics, klezmer and Yiddish
