Be swept away by a vast wave of sound as the world-renowned Yale Russian Chorus performs a program of sacred and secular Slavic choral music from the twelfth to the twenty-first century in the Gothic Revival Sanctuary of Silver Spring's Church of the Ascension.

The Yale Russian Chorus is a tenor-bass a cappella choral ensemble specializing in sacred and secular Slavic choral music. Chorus members are Yale University students from a variety of academic disciplines. Founded in 1953 by Denis Mickiewicz, a Yale student at the time, the YRC is recognized as one of the world's premier performance ensembles of Slavic music.

Founded in 1964, FSGW is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Society seeks to further the understanding, investigation, appreciation, and performance of the traditional folk music and folklore of the American people.
