GOLDEN GATES The Golden Gates, formed in 1993 by Marina Tourlygina, has taken part in many different cultural events, folk festivals and concerts in Russia as well as across Europe and the United States. Awards from many competitions given to Golden Gates recognize the group as one of the most talented, exceptional and traditional representations of the Russian folk culture by children. The children range in age from 5 to 15 years old. MOSCOW NIGHTS The Moscow Nights is an exciting, versatile trio of world recognized and award-winning musicians from Russia. In a little over two years, they have already established themselves as one of the fastest rising folk groups in the U.S. These classically trained artists first took Europe by storm and now have brought their dazzling, toe-tapping music to North America. Their lively music offers an exhilarating and educational performance for audiences of all ages! Tickets $10; $7 for children 13 and under.
