The Choir of the Saint-Petersburg Metropolitan Clergy
Yuri Gerasimov, conductor
Spiritual and Secular Russian Music
A unique event, an inspired, artistically outstanding and well-visited appearance of the Russian Patriarchate Choir of Moscow encouraged Lisinski Concert Hall to present another exquisite ensemble that performs spiritual and secular Russian choir music – The Choir of Saint-Petersburg Metropolitan Clergy! The choir was founded by Metropolitan Nikodim in 1971 to enrich and complement metropolitan celebrations with music. The excellence of the Choir, which was supported by Metropolitan Alexei and Alexei II later on, has been proven by appearances at the Kirov Ballet and St. Petersburg Court Chapel, among other things, as well as their participation in marking the thousandth anniversary of the Baptism of Russia. The modern history of the Choir started with graduates of the St. Petersburg Theological Academy in 2008. Under Artistic Director and Conductor Yuri Gerasimov, rector of St Petersburg Cathedral of the Lord's Transfiguration, they began an intense concert and liturgical activity in 2010, also giving numerous guest performances and going on tours around Russia and abroad. The Choir of the Saint-Petersburg Metropolitan Clergy is not just one of numerous musical ensembles, it is also a meeting point of rectors, eager and dedicated shepherds of their congregations, who devotedly proclaim the word of God with music and demonstrate the depth, strength and beauty of prayer. They serve, teach and educate, and their singing and candid preaching leave nobody indifferent.
