Music School “Vesna”
The “Vesna” Choir was created by a prominent Russian conductor and teacher Alexander Ponomarev (1938-2012). Later a music school was based on the choir. Both the choir and the school are considered to be one of the best here in this country.
During its career, the “Vesna” Choir won many prestigious international singing competitions in Spain, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, France, Canada. It also can boast of two “European Grand Prix”, received in 2000 and 2017. The young singers have toured the whole Russia and most of the Europe; they performed in Japan, China, and Canada, too. Every year they sing in the Moscow Conservatory’s Halls.
The choir’s repertoire is vast, and is embracing hundreds of classical pieces representing different epochs, genres, styles, and peoples. Contemporary choir music takes a certain place in the ensembles’ set lists with many pieces are written for “Vesna” exclusively, and dedicated to the choir.
Professor Nadezha Averina, laureate of international competitions and a disciple of Ponomarev, has led the choir for the last five years; she keeps the traditions of her outstanding teachers.
