The «Pokroff» Chamber Choir was established in 1993 as an amateur choir for one of Moscow’s parish churches. Known as The Moscow Youth Orthodox Choir until 2004, «Pokroff» began its concert activity and recorded its first compact disc Divinity in Sounds in 1999. The choir has chosen, as a creative principle, to perform a combination of functions. It acts as a church choir and as a concert collective.
Between the years 2000 and 2014, the choir traveled for spiritual and educational purposes to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Estonia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, the Crimea and the far north region of Russia - Norilsk and Dudinka. The members of the «Pokroff» Chamber choir, for their educational and peace-making activity, were called «singing ambassadors» by the foreign media.
The choir continually sings in the church and arranges concerts in parish communities, orphanages, and homes for the elderly in the Moscow region. The repertoire of the choir includes Orthodox religious music, spiritual verses, and original arrangements of folk and war songs. Members of the choir are young, talented musicians and are students and graduates of the musical colleges of Moscow.
