The Male Choir of St.Petersburg
“It is a long time since we heard such a wonderful performance, a performance of high culture! Tears of emotion flowed freely! It was one of the best nights in many years. It's peculiar that everyone even those for whom the experience is new is moved by this spiritual music. It is close to the human heart. Many thanks to the group!!! You don't want it to end.”

“It is a men's only choir”
Vadim Afanasiev has proved that Russia continues to nourish unique voices. The choir continues to surprise listeners with its phenomenal talent. Every singer is superb and very individual. It is not surprising; they have each won a very stiff competition to join the group. Maestro: “Our choir is a living organism and like any living organism it breathes, has its ups and downs and continues to develop. First and foremost my task is to preserve this living process. We are not like a greenhouse plants, grown in an artificial environment, but sinners, always confessing our sins, but always alive.

“Such voices could only come from Russia”
It was a great pleasure to hear this concert. It was a joy to see these wonderful Russian men talented and pious. Hearing their divine voices, one wants to believe that Russia is alive and God has not abandoned her.

“Music of Eternity”
Listening to the choir you hear the music of eternity. It seems that we have waited our whole lives to meet the Men's Choir of St. Petersburg. The audience will never forget this! Such joy! Inspiration! We were filled with deep emotions. We were moved by their great talent and effort. We wish them happiness and success. All the best to the choir!

“The Choir is a gem”
Listening to the Men's Choir of St. Petersburg you experience every sound of a musical piece with them. The choristers sing in such a way that you don't want the performance to end. I, and probably all the listeners didn't want such marvelous, soulful, sincere singing to end!
“Westfalenpost” 1997. Germany.
“And again, flawless!”
Our public knows and loves you. The sound of your singing struck the listeners with its realness, pure emotion and lack of artificiality. Neither the director nor the choristers highlight themselves individually, through the music but rather, the music flowing through the soul of each choir member, makes itself known to each listener in a new, always beautiful form.
