75 years after the liberation of Finnmark, it is particularly pleasing to host a grand concert and celebration with Hærens Musikkorps and selected soloists from the Red Army choir and orchestra in Moscow.
To fully appreciate the power of the deep and powerful voices of the Red Army Choir, it is necessary to look to Russia's incredible history. Since its creation in 1928 was the choir's mission to lift the morale of the forces and let people relive the spirit of the October Revolution through powerful and beautiful chorus.
In modern times, the ensemble, which is the Russian army's official choir and orchestra, has become known for the whole world through their impressive vocals and magnificent concerts.
On the occasion that it is 75 years since Soviet troops liberated Finnmark from Hitler's army, the Alexandrov Ensemble, which is their real name, has sent their lead soloists to Harstad. Together with Hærens Musikkorps they will create a powerful concert experience and anniversary celebration at the Arctic Arts Festival.
