"Chorovaya Akademia" Presents
Russian Choral Music at Hopkins

"Chorovaya Akademia," a men's a cappella choir founded in Moscow in 1989 under the direction of Alexander Sedov, brings its exceptional repertoire to The Johns Hopkins University on Wednesday, April 5, at 8 p.m.

The ensemble, which champions the superb, thousand-year tradition of Russian choral music, will perform in Shriver Hall auditorium on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

The concert is sponsored by the university's Office of Special Events

Each of the fifteen singers is a virtuoso in his own right, and together they form a choir renowned for its remarkable range, exquisite tone and evocative interpretations. During its debut tour of the United States in 1993, "Chorovaya Akademia" won unqualified acclaim for its diverse programs, which include beautiful Russian Orthodox Church music of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In addition to liturgical music, the choir will perform secular pieces by some of the world's greatest composers including Tchaikovsky, Borodin, Saint-SaČns and Schubert as well as genre and folk pieces from the comic to the meditative.

"Chorovaya Akademia" has performed in the leading concert halls of Moscow and throughout Russia. In selected performances outside Russia, it has been tremendously successful, earning many prestigious awards.

Tickets are $18 and $17. Senior citizens, full-time student and group discounts are available. For information, call the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events at (410) 516- 7157.
