Traditional Russian folk song arranged for treble voices in three parts (SSA).

Kalinka is about a young man sitting under a red berry bush (Kalinka), singing of his feelings for his sweetheart. The expressiveness of the song is achieved through the contrast between a lively and rhythmic chorus and the more legato and subdued verses.

This arrangement of Kalinka was premiered at the 1995 National Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Washington, D.C., by the Chevy Chase Elementary School Chorus, directed by Joan Gregoryk.



"The Columbus Indiana Children's Choir performed this song in Fairbanks, Alaska and it was one of the most beautiful songs I had ever heard."

"I was a member of the Chevy Chase Elementary School Chorus from fall of 1991 to spring of 1993 and performed in the US with the Yunost Chorus, though I was not one of the students to go to Russia. It was a wonderful experience and I wish I still had the recordings all the choral members got with the highlights of each years performances but sadly they are gone for good. If anyone knows where I can find copies please post."
