Russian dance and music Trio Barynya performed a school assembly concert in Nevada. The performance took place on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 10:00AM at the Foothills Montessori School, 1401 Amador Ln, Henderson, NV 89012.
About the program of performance:
Students and teachers spent 45 minutes of their Monday morning learning about Russian culture through songs, music, dance and language. In between playing songs on garmoshka and guitar, singing songs, and dancing traditional numbers to the music, Artistic director and founder of the ensemble Barynya Mikhail Smirnov shared a little bit of the Russian language with the students. He taught them phrases such as "Thank You" (SPASIBO), "Hello" (ZDRAVSTVUITE), "You're Welcome" (PAZHALUYSTA) and "Bye" (PAKA) as well as the alphabet and counting. He said each word in English and then slowly in Russian, allowing the children a moment to try the words themselves after each one.
After the segment on words, the students attempted to chatter in Russian for a couple minutes, smiling and laughing about how they sounded. Almost in the end of the performance, Mikhail paused to share a couple of Russian tongue twisters, explaining each one in English first, and then saying them in Russian at top speed. With each one, the twisters got more complicated and lengthy. There was even a chance for a handful of students to get up on stage and try out a couple of Russian percussion instruments.
