Our choir

Site page

There are currently two choirs in our church - Slavonic, conducted by Paula Genis and English, conducted by Konstantine Ogora.

You can find musical arrangements by Jared Brewer, former choir director and member of the Eastern American Diocese Music Committee.

In addition to the accompaniment to our regular liturgies, our former Slavonic choir conductor Youri Petcherkin has also made available several favored hymns and traditional songs on a CD entitled "Russia, Our Motherland". This first CD is available for purchase at the Kiosk in the church hall as well as for online purchase or as individual tracks from DigStation.com.
