The Alphens Cossacks Choir has now stopped rehearsals in small groups to obey the stricter rules regarding corona control. But they still have a special prize to win during this period. They took part in an international internet competition in Gomel (Belarus). Below the jury report and the accompanying certificate.

Dear Arkadi and participants of the Alphens Cossacks Choir!

We thank you for participating in the 1-st International internet festival.
We are very happy that Alphens Cossacks Choir is once again making a major contribution to international cooperation between Belarus and the Netherlands, to friendship with various (singing) clubs in the city of Gomel, where Lidya Elovaya is the leader. In connection with the situation surrounding the coronavirus, an International internet festival took place for the first time this year in Gomel and in the Republic of Belarus under the motto “Our age is not in our way!” This festival received a lot of interest from both the participants from our country and from abroad. More than 30 companies from the Netherlands, Russia and the Republic of Belarus participated in the festival.
The performance of Alphens Cossacks Choir has made a great impression on all jury members. In particular, they appreciated the high level of the repertoire, the beautiful costumes, as well as the professionalism of the conductor and leader Arkadi Gankin.
The jury led by Anatoly Yarmolenko has decided to award the Alphens Cossacks Choir with the first degree diploma in the nomination “Vocal art”.
Congratulations! We wish Alphens Cossacks Choir great performances in the future and hope for the new encounters!

Yours sincerely,

The festival committee
