    A HOUSE RESOLUTION honoring the Kamchatka Vocal Ensemble for their brilliant and impressive success in Russia and around the world.

    Whereas, the Kamchatka Vocal Ensemble was founded in 1967;

    Whereas, the members of this group are amateurs of varying ages and profession, coming together to perform a widely diverse repertoire, including old gospel and modern Russian music as well as works from international composers;

    Whereas, this amateur group's most significant achievements to date are its performances of Sergei Rachmaninoff's masterpieces of Russian national music culture, the sacred works St. John Chrysostom Liturgy and Night

Service, and the choral concert The Virgin Mary's Vigil.

    Whereas, the accumulation of such a widely diverse repertoire has led to a significant widening of the ensemble's tour circuit; since 1977 international tours have taken them to Talin, Estonia; Kishinev, Moldavia; Varna, Bulgaria; Riga, Latvia; Sapporo, Japan; Quanjou, China, and Anchorage, Alaska; they have also traveled extensively throughout the former Soviet Union;

    Whereas, the Kamchatka Vocal Ensemble has been recognized as one of Russia's best choirs for the past several years;

    Whereas, the Kamchatka Vocal Ensemble has consistently won awards and prizes at Russian festivals and competitions for the past twenty years and is now becoming well-known internationally, primarily because of its dedication to choral music and a fearlessness to tackle difficult repertoire with a professionalism that belies its amateur status; and

    Whereas, the ensemble's brilliant and impressive success is the fruit of a quarter-century's work by its founder and permanent artistic director, Evgeny Morozov; Therefore,             

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the House of Representatives of the Indiana General Assembly congratulates the Kamchatka Vocal Ensemble for their brilliant and impressive success in Russia and around the world.

        SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the Indiana House of Representatives transmit a copy of this resolution to the conductor of the Kamchatka Vocal Ensemble, Evgeny Morozov, and to the President of Taylor University.
