One of this season's highlights will no doubt be our first visit to Russia during our winter European Tour.  Coincidentally, by the time we got those invitations, we had already planned our first all-Russian program for this season - called Russian Dreams, to be prepared by Elena Sharkova ( our favorite Russian, and an internationally known conductor and choir director.)   Of course we want to sing something Russian in Russian while we're there, and it had better be right, so Elena came on Friday to help is into the words and the spirit of our very lively song.  As you can see it was a very invigorating couple of hours.
