THE ALEXANDROV RED ARMY CHORUS

Founded close to a century ago, the Alexandrov Red Army Chorus has gained tremendous popularity worldwide with the rousing voices of its robust male singers. This stunningly impressive masculine choir gave 1,500 performances in World War II, has performed throughout the Soviet Union, from the Arctic snows to the sands of Tajikistan and is the official choir of Russia’s Armed Forces. Since the 1990s, army women have occasionally been included as sopranos, while dance troupes have been added with single as well as mixed gender performances. The orchestra for the Alexandrov Red Army Chorus includes both traditional and Western instruments with a repertoire that ranges from folk tunes to operatic arias and popular music.
