The London Russian choir welcomes new members
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 knowledge of Russian language is required.
