WHAT: THE ALEXANDROV RED ARMY CHOIR to serenade Torontonians with impromptu street performance outside the Sony Centre Today!
WHY: The Russian Alexandrov Red Army Choir and Ensemble is without question the most renowned and prestigious military ensemble in the world. The celebrated choir will preview their one-night only concert taking place tomorrow night, Thursday – September 8th, 2011 at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts. The Russian Alexandrov Red Army Choir and Ensemble are the official army choir of the Russian armed forces. A consummate favourite at State events, in 2007 they performed for world-leaders at NATO headquarters; the following year they were honoured guests at a celebration marking the 60th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between China and Russia; and in 2004 the Choir received a special blessing for Pope John Paul II acknowledging their remarkable artistic achievements. They are widely regarded as the foremost artistic ensemble of its kind, twice earning the Order of the Red Banner and Red Star, the highest military decoration recognizing civilian service. Their Canadian tour will feature an astonishing 125 musicians and performers, consisting of soloists, a male choir, and dancers, together with a full orchestra. Today the Russian Red Army Choir and Ensemble is at the top of its class and hailed as the military Band in the world.
