Concert by the Russian choir “Voskreseniye”, which means “Resurrection”. They are based in St.Petersburg and perform regularly in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, France and Great Britain.

Due to overwhelming demand, this group of nine highly professional vocalists trained at the world-class Saint-Petersburg Conservatoire, conducted by Yuri Maruk, will be performing in Cambridge again, for one night only, as a part of their UK tour. They capture their audiences with the austere beauty of Orthodox sacred music and the freshness and fun of Russian folk songs.
