The London Russian choir has just started a new season. Open to all, join any time! Based at UCL.
Russian choir in central London - come for a taster
The LRC promotes a wide range of music from Russia. Original arrangements by the choir leader include traditional lyrical songs, ritual music for pagan holidays, wedding and dance songs and other folklore. Another part of the repertoire represents much loved by native Russians Art Songs (Romances) from the 18-19 centuries, as well as Russian Orthodox Church music and pieces by Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and other classics.
The group brings together over 30 music lovers of various ages and cultural backgrounds. Most choir members do not speak Russian but a lot of attention is paid to cultural context, history, language and stylistic features of the music. Based at University College London.
Join any time. Open to all. The choir welcomes all music lovers – no experience of Russian speaking required.
