The message reads, in part:
“Created 50 years ago, the Moscow State Academic Chamber Choir is an outstanding and unique creative ensemble bringing together talented people who dedicated themselves to art. The Minin Choir’s conductors, choirmasters and excellent vocalists have been upholding high musical standards, while conquering the world’s best stages and introducing their audiences to the legacy of remarkable composers and the traditions of the Russian choral school.
Of course, this ensemble largely owes its success and popularity to Vladimir Minin, who founded and headed this choir for many years. He deserves the highest praise for reviving unique traditions in Russia’s spiritual music and choir singing.
I strongly believe that the Moscow State Academic Chamber Choir will continue reaching new professional heights and further promote Russian culture, while your anniversary concerts will be an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.”
