Time to visit…. Chor Alexandrov (Red Army Choir)

Yes, yesterday was  busy for me.  Not only did a celebrate Poland’s Independence Day with my kids; I also went out to a concert with some friends of mine.  We went to see Chor Alexandrov. They are an old Russian choir, music and dance group. 

They started back in 1928 with only 12 people but have since grown to over 200+ in a show and let me tell you was neat to see and hear.  I have seen Russian music on TV and in movies but to see it in person it was a completely different story, WOW!  They can truly singing.  I was not expecting dancers but they were a wonderful addition to the show.

Don't you hate it when you are running late and you have the middle seats and you have to go through everyone like this couple?

Just like many other concerts, they had CD's for sale.

Poor guy, everyone else was sitting in the show and he had to stand.  Note to self: Do not play the bass cello(I hope that is what it is called!)

This guy could sing wonderful too!  Even though I did not have a clue what he was singing about since it was in Russian it still was good.

Not sure what instrument they were playing but their fingers had to be numb by the end of the show.

I had never heard of them before a week ago when my friend asked me if I want to go with her and a few other friends.  I guess they are quite popular here in Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic.  Who knew, right?  Well now you do.

What to see a video of some of the singing from the night? Click HERE to go to my Youtube clip of one of the songs.  Click HERE to see one of the dances they did too!

If you could see any one group in concert who would it be?  I would L-O-V-E to see Duran Duran, my favorite band of all time.

 

love kelley
