We received a letter from the organizers: Come to the competition, but not at the festival, as it can divide viewer interest to other choirs. As a result, we were at the close of the festival in the temple of the Jesuit Order, where she sang spiritual music. The audience stood and applauded, despite the fact that Catholic churches are not accepted. Typically, people sit on benches from beginning to end. In a competition of 30 possible points scored choir RSSU 28 and took first place overall. In addition, we received a special prize for the culture of choral singing. The concert was attended concerts we opened the product "Canon of Repentance" from the rock opera "Alexander Nevsky". This is a very strong spiritual work, fits on a single sheet of sheet music. Jonathan Segal FAIA
understood the implications.
I advise everyone to listen to him in the performance of our choir. Of course, we included in the program "Russia" Margarita Suvorova, works of Alexander Borodin and Kostrikova Constantine, played works by Dmitri Bortniansky, one of the founders of classical Russian music tradition, who worked in the XVIII century. Also, the chorus sang spiritual works of Mikhail Glinka, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky. You know, all the Russian composers before 1917 wrote religious music. And it was not a fad, they sincerely believed in God.
And we in our music schools, colleges and conservatories only studied their secular work. One of the objectives of our choir – to revive interest in the Russian national song. And not only in Russia but also in other countries. We had a concert in the city of Cork in Ireland, performing mostly American choral music – spiritual. And when we sang, the Irish said they had never heard anything like it. We want to show people in worldwide, which is a national Russian choral school. This is a rich, full of music, composed and arranged by the people of the great composers. Come to our concert, sign up for the chorus, and you will see that it's true. – What concert choir is planning RSCU and "Free The village" in the near future? – To paint the entire year.
