Kuban Cossack Choir: from Rossinsky to Zakharchenko

Kuban Cossack Choir: from Rossinsky to Zakharchenko

Krasnodar, 12 October – Yug Times. The Kuban Cossack Choir is by right considered the main cultural brand of the Krasnodar region.

Today in our series of publications called “Glory of Kuban — Pride of Russia,” we are recalling the main landmarks in the history of the Kuban Cossack Choir which will be celebrating its 206th birthday on October 14.

The first choir for the “God-worthy Service” at Yekaterinodar’s Resurrection Cathedral was founded by initiative of Cyril Rossinsky, archpriest of the Black Sea Cossack Host, preacher and enlightener.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Kuban Host’s Vocal Choir (that’s how it was called then), as well as the Russian Empire on the whole, underwent a number of shocks and perturbations. Say, female singers were first admitted only after the February Revolution of 1917.

After WWII, the Kuban Cossacks Song and Dance Group gradually restored the number of its staff — until it was renamed “at the request of the toiling masses” as the State Kuban Cossack Choir. In 1974, another significant event occurred in the modern history of the choir — it was headed by Viktor Zakharchenko, a prominent specialist in folklore and composer. Under his guidance, the choir won lots of prizes of numerous national and international contests and festivals. In 1993, the attribute ‘Academic’ was added to the official name of the group.
