Golosá is Chicago’s premiere Russian choir, founded in 1997 and dedicated to sharing the rich and exuberant traditions of Russian folk music. From Cossack marching tunes to hymns of the Orthodox Church to songs of contemporary Russian artists, Golosá incorporates traditional instruments and dances to tell stories of love, war, and devotion.
Golosá strives to preserve the music and culture of the Siberian Old Believers and of Russian folk singing in general. They passionately dedicate themselves to singing this music for audiences in the Chicago area and beyond. Since its founding, more than 100 members have passed through Golosá’s ranks, and together they have created something that is at once traditional and uniquely their own.

The concert is free and open to the public.
