Celebrate Christmas with the heavenly sounds of The Moscow Boys Choir

by on November 16, 2012

Celebrate the holidays with THE MOSCOW BOYS CHOIR®, a careful blending of heavenly soprano voices with the rich resonance of bass, tenor and baritone sound that brings a distinct Russian flavour to the choral experience. Founded in 1957, this choral ensemble is among Russia’s most prestigious all-boy choirs. Under the direction of Mr. Leonid Baklushin, the boys attend a special school, which provides both general education and musical training. Being selected as a member of the touring company of THE MOSCOW BOYS CHOIR is no easy feat. Hand-picked from over 400 students at their school in Moscow, these highly talented youngsters have the voices of angels and the discipline to match their talents.

The powerful sound of this all-male choir consists of seasonal music from around the world as audiences are musically transported to faraway places including Russia, Europe, the Americas and more. The choir showcases many beloved Christmas classics as well as new and vibrant pieces, many sung in their language of origin. Also featured are favorites from previous tours including excerpts from Handel’s Messiah and other holiday treats such as The Twelve Days of Christmas, and Silver Bells — plus their hauntingly beautiful rendition of Silent Night.

Tickets for THE MOSCOW BOYS CHOIR® are available at The Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
