Art lycee chamber choir  




The "ARION" Choir was founded in 1983 on the base of the Art School of Vladikavkaz, Republic of North Ossetia-Alania. 

The School has combined all in all the educational, musical, choreographic and art schools in a single 10-year-old educational process. Such educational structure helps to reveal the creative potential of students in full measure. Founded in 1977, the School became Russia's first Art Lyceum, in 1989 largely thanks to the selfless effort bent by its current principle and art director Alla Kotsoeva. The "Anon" choir brings girl-students and graduates of the Art Lyceum together. 

Renaissance polyphony of the 15th - 17th centuries, 18th and 19th centuries Russian church music, classical and contemporary West European music, songs and symphonies all feature high on the choir stylistically diverse repertory. "Arion" has breathed a new life in many old Ossetian songs offering a raft of fascinating interpretations. The "Arion" is doing a great job promoting Ossetian music, and they usually unveil almost everything that is written for Youth and Female Choirs. 




The Choir actively involved in the Republic's cultural life, appearing in concerts, competitions and festivals for radio and television. Since 1995 the Arion Choir on a regular Basis cooperates with International Humanitarian Organizations: UNHCR; LJNICEF; DRC and others, working in post conflict arias of North Caucasus.
