60th Anniversary Gala Concert

Woolsey Hall ~ Yale University
with our Founding Conductor, Denis Mickiewicz, and others
Over 100 singers from around the world perform sacred and secular songs under the direction of Founding Conductor Denis Mickiewicz and others in a program marking 60 years of the Yale Russian Chorus as musical ambassadors.
A once in a lifetime event!
The Yale Russian Chorus, founded in 1953 at the height of the Cold War, quickly established a special place in the pantheon of Yale singing groups. It thrives to this day, transcending dramatic changes in the political climate. Its powerful repertoire includes hauntingly lyrical selections, reflecting centuries of Slavic choral tradition.
Throughout its 60 year history the Yale Russian Chorus fostered international understanding. It pioneered with the first “person to person” singing exchanges on Moscow street corners, won prizes at international choral competitions, serenaded government leaders at international functions and recorded extensively. Chorus alumni include leaders in various fields from academia and the clergy to business, law, science and government service. They share a unique bond of loyalty and comradeship, regularly traveling great distances to participate in alumni concerts. None will surpass the 60th Anniversary Gala.
