The “Red Army” Choir joins forces for the first time with the “Gevatron” choir, in a unique and unprecedented musical tour de force, for 10 concerts this week, in four locations around Israel.
The Red Army Choir, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary, is returning to Israel for the fifth time, and for the first time is collaborating with the Gevatron choir, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary, in 10 performances around the country in March. For the Gevatron this signifies the achievement of another dream after they won the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
The concert program includes international hits from different periods and for the first time a special performance of the Gevatron's greatest and most beloved hits by the Red Army Choir.
The Red Army Choir, which has become a legendary institution that transcends all genres and cultures, unites audiences with vitality and entertainment value that is universal, including a wide range of music ranging from folklore and classical music to global hits
The Red Army Choir was established 90 years ago, in 1928, in the Soviet Union. Since then it has enjoyed incredible success internationally. Over 20 million people have watched the choir on international tours in more than 50 countries. The Red Army Choir is the largest men's choir in the world and is considered both a symbol of Russian culture and a milestone in the culture of military bands. Its appearance in Israel was in October 2017, when it hosted Israeli singers Yardena Arazi and Dudu Fisher.
Much has already been written about Israel’s Gevatron choir. Today, the choir includes about 20 members. Over the last few years, the band has embarked on two major tours in North America and European countries, and there is great demand for its performances.
In 2007 the choir received the Israel Prize for Lifetime Achievement. This led to a renewed interest in hearing the classical songs of Israel. The unique character of the Gevatron - the magic of its colorful and harmonious tones, through its special songs and its innovations to old classics - gives the choir its own unique flavor.
Those who love traditional music and culture can expect an incredible and unforgettable experience, as the Red Army Choir hosts the Gevatron choir in an unprecedented event in Israel.
