Kyiv Chamber Choir

Home: Kiev, UP

If you want to know why the New York Times and Washington Post wrote about The Kyiv Chamber Choir, or why they were invited to sing at the White House during its annual VIP viewing of the Christmas decor, then just take one listen to their work. With only 20 singers, their big, marvelously focused voices are the kind that can easily hold their own on the opera stage, but without the kind of operatic vibrato that can make an ensemble rattle, wrote Washington Post reviewer Joan Reinthaler following their performance at the George Mason Arts Center.

The Kyiv Chamber Choir was founded in 1990, and its members include professional singers who graduated from conservatories and musical institutes throughout Ukraine. The Choir's major awards include: Golden Diploma at the First Robert Schummann Competition in Zwikkau (Germany, 1992); First Award at the Twelfth International Church Music Festival in Hajnowka (Poland, 1993); Grand Prix at the Sixth International Choral Festival in Sligo (Ireland, 1993); Second Award at Langolen International Musical Eisteddfod (Wales, 1994), and more.

The Kyiv Chamber Choir performed in Carnegie Hall (New York), the White House and the Washington National Cathedral, the Concert Hall of George Mason University; BBC St. John's Smith Square Concert Hall (London); Espace Pierre Cardin, Eglise Saint Roch (Paris; Notre Dame de Paris and Cathedrals in Rouen, Reims, Amien, Strasbourg, Charte, Nancy, Le Havre, Lille, Dieppe, Metz, Paris; in the Philharmonic Halls of Utrecht, Rotterdam, Amsterdam (Concertgebouw), Berlin, Minsk, Kyiv; Berlin Dom; Long Gallery (Kilkenny); Tivoli Concert Hal, "Russia" Concert Hall (Moscow).
