Overview

The records consist of performance posters and a photograph of the Yale Slavic Chorus from 1968-1971.

Biographical / Historical

The Chorus was founded in 1969, the first year of undergraduate co-education at Yale, and was the first all-women’s group on Campus. It was originally conducted by William Robbins, Jr., then a music major in Yale College and a member of the all-male Yale Russian Chorus.

The Chorus sings a diverse repertoire that spans the traditions of Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia, among others. Though many members of the Chorus are not native speakers of Slavic languages, the Yale Slavic Chorus works extensively with native folk musicians and vocalists to practice accurate pronunciation and style.
