The ensemble from Russia’s Ekaterinburg city will perform popular pieces from its repertoire, including folk songs and dances about romance, weddings, and folk games from the Ural region.

The Ural State Russian Folk Choir is a folk song and a dance ensemble formed in 1943 and is well-known all over the world. The 80-member group includes a chorus, an orchestra, and a ballet troupe.
