author: Eugene Rakhimkulov

The chorus of the Ufa’s Cyril and Methodius church with the docent of the chair of music theory of the Ufa State Academy of Arts Tatiana Goncharenko at the head won the diploma of the first degree at the festival of Christian patriotic song “The Domes of Arzamas”, held in the town of Arzamas, Nizhniy Novgorod region. In total complexity 42 similar choruses fr om 13 Russian regions and CIS countries have taken part in it.

The creative collective from our Republic was chosen personally by the Bishop of Ufa and Sterlitamac Nikon and not vainly as it turned out. Even the forest fires, enveloping the territory, wh ere the contest was held, failed to hamper the successful performance of our chorus.

After the end of the contest the chorus of the Ufa’s Cyril and Methodius church received invitations to the similar contests in other regions of the country.
