Donate to Slavyanka Russian Chorus
We want to share three things about the Slavyanka Russian Chorus with you as we begin our 41st year.
First, this music is extraordinary.
Be it village folk tunes or masterworks by Russia’s greatest contemporary composers, it’s filled with deep feeling and spirit. It's music that brings us into the soaring mystical vision and spiritual depth of one of the world’s great faiths – and equally, into the earthy richness of traditional Russian life.
Second, we are blessed with an extraordinary Artistic Director.
Trained as a musician in Russia, Irina Shachneva has a seemingly inexhaustible knowledge of choral music, choral singing, and the choral art. She believes in this music and is totally committed to bringing it to life for our audiences.
And third – over the years, this has become a truly amazing community.
It's a community of singers, alumni singers, supporters, and listeners – people like you who come because they love and are moved by what they hear. Here’s what some of our singers say about why they come, week after week:
“Great music, great conductor, great director, great people!”
“This music is wonderful and largely unknown.”
“Our artistic director is passionate and reverent about the music.”
“Listening to the sacred music, I experienced an epiphany that changed the spiritual direction of my life.”
Building on this foundation over the next two years, we have great plans to strengthen and grow the musical capabilities of the choir. The challenge is that as our activities grow more ambitious, inevitably so do our budgets. Your support will help us continue to grow; can we count on your help?
We’ve already raised almost half of our goal of $17,000. If you haven’t yet given, please make your tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100, $250, or whatever amount fits your budget on this page. Or if you prefer, you can send a check to:
