TWO INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED RUSSIAN MUSICAL

GROUPS ARE COMING TO THE UNITED STATES TO PERFORM “UNITY SONGS” A FREE CONCERT IN THE PARK

 

THE ALL MALE AND ALL FEMALE ENSEMBLES WILL PERFORM

SONGS OF PEACE, LOVE AND HEROISM IN NYC AT THE

ROBERT F. WAGNER PARK AT BATTERY PLACE ON MAY 12th

 

(New York, NY) – As U.S. relations with Russia remain strained, two of Moscow’s internationally acclaimed music organizations, the M.Turetsky Choir (an all male a cappella ensemble and musical collective) and Soprano Art Group (an all female acapella ensemble and musical collective) are heading to New York to sing songs of peace, love and heroism as part of their joint world tour UNITY SONGS. At its core, the concert uses music to unite humanity with an eye on peace and love in times of war and strife. The groups will have played in Israel, France, Germany, Austria, Russia, Slovenia and Belarus before concluding in the United States on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park, 20 Battery Place in Manhattan. The concert begins at 4PM and is free and open to the general public.

 

The program, directed by the legendary bandleader Mikhail Turetsky, has become an international sensation combining the songs about peace, love and heroism. The songs will be sung in a variety of languages including English, Russian, Spanish, Hebrew and Italian.

 

M.Turetsky Choir features a large group of male soloists with magical voices ranging from tenor-contralto to basso-profundo, spanning four-and-a-half octaves that create astounding harmonies, as well as talented musicians playing piano, violin, guitar, drums. The artists have no boundaries repertory – from world classic to rock, from pop to opera, from Jazz to folk hits. Established in 1989, M.Turetsky Choir has been performing for more than two decades to sold-out venues in the United States (Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Chicago, etc), Europe and Asia. The Choir always receives a warm welcome in each American city it has toured, and there is always high synergy with their American fans. After several performances in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln

Center and other leading American venues, the legendary band looks forward to revisiting the U.S. and sharing this innovative project. Every concert is unique and tailored to each city.

Mr. Turetsky is committed to create an “unforgettable and inimitable experience where the atmosphere of good will, joy and mutual understanding among cultures will triumph.” It is worth noting that M.Turetsky Choir never ended any performance in the US without singing their signature song “God Bless America.” The choir will be joined by the Soprano Art Group, a fabulous women’s group that combines all existing singing voices from the highest (soprano) to the lowest (mezzo). Each soloist has her own singing style, from academic to folk and pop- jazz. The artists not only sing, but also play different musical instruments (violin, saxophone, keyboards). The group also sings a cappella and with instrumental accompaniment (piano, guitar, drums).

 

According to Mr. Turetsky, the show’s repertoire is “a newly conceptualized, multi-genre  performance that blends elements of theatre and opera in a brilliant interpretation of melodies performed in a variety of styles, in ten different languages, and sung by incredible voices!”
