The St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble, which includes the talents of Kirill Sokolov, Sergey Shapinskiy, Vadim Smantser, and Andrei Volikov, has been performing in churches throughout the United States since 2002. Their concerts reflect their culture and heritage, with a balance of sacred songs by Russian composers, and Russian folk songs.
The members of The St. Petersburg Russian Men’s Ensemble bring extensive training and experience to the presentation of Russian folk songs and sacred selections. Members of the Ensemble have attended the Glinka Choir School and the St. Petersburg Conservatory. They have sung with many choirs and vocal groups including the State Academic Capella and the Choir of Smolny Cathedral.
This year’s concert will feature choral works by Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and Taneyev, among others. A free will offering will be collected to support their US Tour.
