Dear Friends of RCCNY!
We are deeply grateful for your loyal support and devotion to the Russian Chamber Chorus of New York. For 35 years RCCNY has been one of the leading ambassadors of the Russian creative spirit in America. The Chorus’s enormous repertoire spanned the centuries, performing practically all genres of Russian choral music — from simple village songs to world premieres by contemporary composers while the Chorus received recognition from leading musicians and the press.
Sadly, there are a number of reasons we had to make the difficult decision that RCCNY’s 35th Anniversary year would be its last concert year. Meanwhile, we will keep RCCNY’s website live with the archival materials. In fact, we will be updating the “Watch and Listen” page (go to www.rccny.org and click “Watch and Listen”) with videos from past concert recordings. Please visit it to hear your favorite music. We will always be proud of the Chorus’s great accomplishments!
Although we will miss our rewarding musical explorations with RCCNY, please know that we remain an active part of the musical life of New York. Our work to celebrate the rich heritage of Russian choral music continues with the Nikolai Kachanov Singers, RCCNY’s sister performing group, which gave its inaugural performances in 2015. This ensemble faithfully serves the Muse by continuing musical journeys through the history and geography of choral music, as did RCCNY. There is so much more to explore across the globe!
You may find information about our future concerts at the new NKS website at www.kachanovsingers.org or on Facebook: @nikolaikachanovsingers. And, go straight to the NKS YouTube channel to enjoy beautiful music: https://tinyurl.com/y7gfhqnj.
We invite you to join the Nikolai Kachanov Singers program “Parallels and Crossings”, in June 2021.
Please stay in touch to hear our future concerts. Once again, the NKS website: www.kachanovsingers.org.
Nikolai and Tamara
