Each concert of the Kuban Cossack Choir becomes a real cultural event, which is accompanied by a great success and long applause of the hall.
This season, viewers of the House of Music have already witnessed the enchanting performance of the ballet of the Kuban Cossack Choir, and now they will have an equally vivid spectacle - the concert of the choral group of this famous band. By tradition, the artists will perform in colorful historical costumes, invariably fascinating even the most sophisticated spectators.
The program of the choir in the House of Music - the best examples of Cossack folk art: historical, folk Cossack songs, spiritual chants, modern works of authorship. These songs are not just beautiful: they are imbued with deep spirituality and great love for the Fatherland, and cause the public the most lively response and genuine emotions - delight, tears and laughter ...
The Kuban Cossack Choir is the only secular group that received the blessing of Patriarch Alexy II in 1995 to accompany the Divine Liturgy in the temples.
The origins of the collective date back to 1811, when the Military Choir was created by the archpriest of the Black Sea Cossack army and the Enlightener of the Kuban, Cyril Rossinsky. The musicians not only served in the Orthodox church, but also gave secular concerts, toured, performed domestic and foreign classics along with the symphony orchestra. It was not by chance that members of the imperial family admired their singing.
The repertoire of the Kuban Cossack Choir - spiritual, folk and classical works. Like two hundred years ago, today this legendary team honorably carries an honorary mission, serving its art to the Fatherland.
The artistic director of the team is the People’s Artist of Russia and Ukraine, Adygea, Abkhazia and Karachay-Cherkessia, Honored Artist of South Ossetia, Honored Artist of the Chechen Republic, twice winner of the State Prize of Russia, winner of the International Prize of the Andrew the First-Called Foundation, twice Hero of Kuban, Doctor of Art Studies, Professor, composer Viktor Zakharchenko.
