We have wide performing experience.
Usually we perform two kinds of programs: Mixture or Sacred.
Below you can find the examples of our two programs.
Our mixture program usually consists of two parts: 1st. part - sacred music of Russian Orthodox Church. It contains pieces of both our famous composers like Bortnianski, Tchaikovski, Tchesnokov, Rachmaninov, Gretchaninov and not very well-known out of Russia, but great masters of choir music. And then we continue with some of Russian and word vocal solo classic pieces.
In the second part of the concert we sing Russian folk songs in all their variety: comic, lyric, dancing, love songs. This is how our usual, basic program looks like.
