Music Director: Nikolai Kornev • Chorus-master: Vladimir Dobrovolsky

Founded by Nikolai Kornev in 1997, only two years later the St Petersburg Chamber Choir performed to acclaim at the Leningrad Musical Spring Festival. This was the start of a successful series of concerts both in Russia and abroad, of recording sessions for soundtracks for over forty films and theatre productions, as well as television and radio programmes. The choir has performed as a leading participant at numerous festivals and has won a multitude of awards and prizes. It is led by Nikolai Kornev, who continues to develop the excellent traditions of the St Petersburg choral school which he studied at the Glinka Choral Institute and the Leningrad Conservatory in the classes of the legendary Yelizaveta Kudryavtseva and Pyotr Levando. The choir has worked with many leading conductors such as Sir Georg Solti, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Semyon Bychkov, Valery Gergiev, Mikhail Pletnev, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Yuri Temirkanov and others. It has toured abroad with repeated success, visiting almost all the countries of Europe, South Asia and North America.
