About the performers

The St Petersburg Radio and TV Children’s Chorus was founded in 1955 and was the first children’s chorus to feature in the USSR’s broadcasting system. The ensemble has collaborated with such outstanding musicians as Yuri Slavnitsky and Isaak Dunayevsky. Currently the chorus takes part in choral and symphony music concerts, operas, plays and other official events. The ensemble tours throughout Russia and to Japan, the USA and Europe.
The chorus’ repertoire includes works from various eras and styles, such as Britten’s War Requiem and the cantata Ceremony of Carols, Mahler’s Third and Eighth Symphonies and Orff’s Carmina Burana.
The St Petersburg Radio and TV Children’s Chorus is a regular participant in Mariinsky Theatre performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (choreography by George Balanchine), The Nutcracker (production by Mihail Chemiakin), А True Story about Cinderella (directed by Arkady Gevondov) and The Queen of Spades.
