“The performance, in the fine Olin Auditorium, was splendid. The Russian Chamber Chorus of New York, under Nikolai Kachanov, was radiant and sonorous.” – The New York Times, Aug. 18, 1998, Paul Griffiths

Russian Musical Arts Society of America, Inc. Artistic Director, Nikolai Kachanov, founded The Russian Chamber Chorus of New York (RCCNY) in 1984. The semi-professional chorus has since become America’s preeminent Russian vocal ensemble and an admired ambassador of the Russian creative spirit. RCCNY’S mission is to build a bridge between the Russian choral tradition and American audiences at a high level of artistic achievement. RCCNY presents works of well-known composers from Russia and Eastern Europe. RCCNY combines the precision of the American choral tradition with the expressiveness of the Russian choral tradition.
