WomenSing joins Cappella SF, the Bay Area's professional choir, and GRAMMY-Award winning conductor Ragnar Bohlin in a program celebrating the magnificent choral tradition of Russia.

The program includes such iconic figures as Rachmaninoff and others less familiar like Schnittke. This is a journey into the heart of Russia. Influenced by Russian nationalism and folk culture, symbolist literature, romanticism and the deep choral tradition of the Orthodox church, Russian composers have produced some of the most awe-inspiring and powerful compositions of the choral genre.
