Opening in September
Slavic Voices - new choir opening in London and Brighton
in London and Brighton & Hove
Slavic Voices is open to singers of all backgrounds. It presents music of all styles from the Slavic world: Orthodox chants, beautiful classics by Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and others, refined XVIII-XIX-centuries Art song and gritty folklore from the far corners of Siberia to the banks of the Black Sea. The repertoire is sung mainly in Russian but also in Ukrainian, Belorussian, occasional Bulgarian, Polish, Czech, and adding a guest visit by a song in Yiddish or Georgian. No knowledge of the languages is required.
Join us on the journey to explore and share this culturally unique and musically diverse repertoire with the wide world. We will perform at festivals and choral events, present our own concerts and collaborations with choirs and instrumentalists several times a year.
Led by Polina Skovoroda-Shepherd, granddaughter of a Cossack, an internationally acclaimed performer, educator and cultural activist.
Schedule and fees: blocks of 10 sessions, paid in advance. Taster session free, full term fee when joining.
