Part of the Community Workshop Series

Learn about choral music from Russia and other Slavic countries with the Alumni of the Yale Russian Chorus.

Throughout its 60 year history, the Chorus has fostered international understanding. It pioneered the first person-to-person cultural exchanges, singing informal concerts on Moscow street corners in 1958. The Chorus has won prizes at international choral competitions, serenaded government leaders at international functions and recorded extensively. Chorus alumni feel a strong bond of loyalty and comradeship. Through their own organization, the YRC Alumni Association, Chorus alumni present concerts throughout United States and in Europe, and in October 2018 celebrated their 65th Anniversary with a concert at Yale's Woolsey Hall.
