Join us for a fun afternoon of music by the folk ensemble Zolotoj Plyos. Perfect for the whole family. The group was founded in 1994 in the city of Saratov, Russia.  Its members–Alexander Solovov, Elena Sadina, and Sergei Grachev–all graduated from the Saratov State Conservatory.

Their repertoire includes folk songs and instrumental pieces from various parts of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, and other areas, and also features Gypsy music, Russian popular music, and Jewish music. The members of the ensemble play more than thirty Russian folk instruments, including the bayan, chromatic and diatonic accordions, the balalaika, domra, guitar, zhaleika, clarinet, saxophone, various percussion instruments, and Russian bells.

The ensemble has performed around the world and has toured the U.S. several times. Previous tours of the U.S. included a concert at the Kennedy Center and a residency directing the Russian Choir at Middlebury College. The group previously performed at the Museum of Russian Icons in 2013. The members of Zolotoj Plyos currently live and work in Belgium.
