Yale Russian Chorus with Darbazi

About the Yale Russian Chorus:
The Yale Russian Chorus is a tenor-bass a cappella choral ensemble specializing in sacred and secular Slavic choral music. The chorus members are Yale University students from a variety of academic disciplines. Founded in 1953 by Denis Mickiewicz, a Yale student at the time, the YRC is recognized as one of the world’s premier performance ensembles of Slavic music today.

Their repertoire spans the 12th to the 21st centuries, with origins across Eastern Europe from Slovakia to Georgia. They sing a variety of sacred and secular settings, including ancient chant, folk songs, and works by Tchaikovsky, Bortnyansky, Kedrov, and Chesnokov. Recordings of the Yale Russian Chorus have been placed on the New York Times critics’ choice list, and described as a ‘must-have recording’ by National Public Radio’s Performance Today.

About the Exhibit:
From September 22 – October 14, experience Ouroboros, an immersive group exhibit, featuring the work of Ellen Bleiwas, Emily DiCarlo, Gunilla Josephson, Adrienne Trent and Marian Wihak in the unconventional art exhibition space of St. Anne’s Anglican Church in Toronto. Presenting a range of installations, site-specific sculptures, and multi-channel video projects, Ouroboros focuses on themes of cyclical time, the weight of history, and the connecting power of memory. Visitors are invited to explore the historic site and its sculptural responses – a collision of contemporary art and Byzantine Revival architecture.
