The choir with the longest journey within Russia
The Academic choir of Far Eastern Federal University will participate in the biggest choral festival
INTERKULTUR is pleased to introduce some choirs, which will attend the biggest choral event worldwide: The World Choir Games in Sochi 2016.
The singers of the Academic choir of Far Eastern Federal University come from the southeastern part of the world’s biggest country: From Vladivostok. Thus the choir has the longest journey to the World Choir Games within Russia.
The choir was founded in 1999 on the basis of Oriental Institute of Far Eastern Technical University and consists of students from the fields of technic, liberal arts and natural sciences. A part of them doesn’t even have musical education. But through the common love to music the artistic experience is in a good balance. So the choir is able to perform the most advanced compositions.
The Academic choir of FEFU is constantly developing. Now they have many popular and sophisticated compositions in their repertory. There are a lot of compositions of Russian and international music, classical and modern compositions, sacred music, jazz and folk music.
The collective regularly takes part in local, regional and international contests and festivals including the World Choir Games 2012 in Cincinnati and 2014 in Riga. Next year the choir will sing together with thousands of singers in Sochi. We are looking forward to it!
