Follow THE MOSCOW BOYS CHOIR on
THE MOSCOW BOYS CHOIR is a careful blending of heavenly soprano voices with the rich resonance of bass, tenor and baritone sound that brings a distinct Russian flavor to the choral experience. Founded in 1957, this choral ensemble is among Russia's most prestigious all-boy choirs.
Under the direction of Choir Mistress Mrs. Victoria Smirnova, 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.

A rare mid-concert standing ovation, when the audience leaps to its feet before the last, lingering notes of a song, is perhaps the greatest compliment of all!
