Rocky Mathey Theater

The folk ensemble “Zolotoj Plyos” was founded in 1994 in the city of Saratov, Russia.  Its members are Alexander Solovov, Elena Sadina, and Sergei Grachev.  While students in Russia, the musicians collected old Russian songs and bell music in rural villages and towns. The group’s repertoire includes folk songs, dances, and instrumental pieces from various parts of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, and other areas; it also features Gypsy music, Russian popular music, and Jewish music.  The members of the ensemble play more than thirty Russian folk instruments, including the bayan, chromatic and diatonic accordions, the balalaika, domra, guitar, zhaleika, clarinet, saxophone, various percussion instruments, and Russian bells.

Zolotoj Plyos has performed in the main halls of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the State Academic Choir in St. Petersburg.  They have also made many tours of the United States, including a concert in the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and they have directed the Russian Choir of the Middlebury College Kathryn Wasserman Davis School of Russian at Middlebury College. At the present time, the members of “Zolotoj Plyos” live and work in Belgium.
