Pyatnitsky Russian Folk Choir (Choir)

The Pyatnitsky Russian Folk Choir was established by Mitrofan Pyatnitsky in 1910 initially with 18 peasants from Voronezh, Ryazan and Smolensk gubernias. The peasant chorus held its first performance at the Small hall of the Moscow Nobility Club (later the October Hall of the House of Trade Unions) on March 2, 1911.

Pyatnitsky focused on traditional Russian song. The performers sang, enacted dance scenes and played folk instruments. One of the first soloists of renown in the chorus was Arina Kolobayeva. In its early years the chorus received high praise from Russian musicians Sergei Rachmaninov and Fyodor Chaliapin.

The chorus has its own folklore studio with a collection of folklore materials and recordings. Today, the chorus has over 100 members. The chorus has been awarded numerous state awards. In its long years of existence it has visited every port of the former Soviet Union and toured Czecholslovakia, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Finland, Canada, Japan, Sweden, Mexico, Germany, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Norway and Luxembourg.
