The London Russian choir start a new term on 5 March in central London. Open to all, join any time! Based at UCL.
London Russian Choir - join us to perform at Chorus FEstival
We are looking forward to our performance together with The Brighton & Hove Russian Choir at Southbank Centre’s annual Chorus festival.
The two Russian choirs will perform a joint programme and we need lots of people. Come join us for the sessions leading up to Chorus!
The choir promotes a wide range of music from Russia. Original arrangements by the choir leader include traditional lyrical and epic songs, ritual calendar music for pagan holidays, wedding songs, dance songs and 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 more known pieces by Bortnyansky, 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.
