It also includes Russian folk and military songs and settings of Russian poetry by classical composers. The quartet has sung in leading international festivals in Russia, Western Europe and the United States, and its recordings have received high acclaim from critics and the music press.
In the June 12 concert, the quartet will perform sacred music in Saint Michael Church, followed by a folk music presentation in the adjoining Saint Michael Cultural Center.
