Golosá is Chicago’s one and only Russian folk choir, founded in 1997 at the University of Chicago. We sing sacred and secular Russian folk songs in a mixed-voice a capella ensemble, and we perform all year long throughout the Chicago area. Auditions are generally held once a year, in the fall.

The ensemble is supervised by Artistic Director Tamara Ghattas. Manager Lauren Makholm handles booking requests, and President Drew Boshardy is our University of Chicago liaison.

Please visit the events page for information on our future engagements. Even better, sign up on our mailing list so that you will be informed of all the choir’s performances and other activities.
