The event is to mark the anniversary of the State St. Petersburg Academic Capella.
The 540th anniversary of the State St. Petersburg Academic Capella will be celebrated with the large-scale festival Neva Choir Assemblies, and a concert and a multimedia installation on November 5.
The audience will see the centuries-long history of the Capella recreated with the help of modern technologies. Interestingly, the St. Petersburg Capella is actually older than the city itself as it had been established as the Tsar’s Choir in Moscow more than two centuries before St. Petersburg was founded.
According to Olga Khomova, Director of the Capella, the Capella has been engaged in many bright innovative projects in the recent years, that is why the multimedia format has been chosen for the historic flashback.
In its anniversary year, the Capella travels a lot having visiting Paris and Berlin and going next to Wien and around Russia.
