Russia's Alexandrov Ensemble
Aleksandra's Note: Russia's acclaimed Alexandrov Ensemble is the official choir of Russia's Armed Forces. On Christmas day, December 25, 2016, Russia (and the world) suffered a tragic loss, as over 60 members of the choir were killed while traveling on a military aircraft that crashed into the Black Sea. The choir was on its way from Moscow to the Russian military base near Latakia, Syria to perform for the armed forces as part of the New Year celebrations. All 92 people on board the aircraft were killed in the crash.
The Alexandrov Ensemble is comprised of a male choir, an orchestra, and a dance ensemble.
Here we have the wonderful opportunity to hear this acclaimed Russian choir perform a beautiful classic World War One folk song, the Serbian "TAMO DALEKO" ("There, Far Away").
It is a blessing that this poignant performance was captured on film for posterity.
