Pyotr Leshchenko The Peter Lescenko Club, organized in 1991, is named after the most famous singer of the Russian Diaspora and father of the Russian tango Peter Konstantinovich Leschenko (or, according to the standard spelling of the timeLescenko). The great bass Fedor Chaliapine called Lescenco a record singer, as his records sold millions of copies throughout the world.

The organizer and leader of the club is Alexander Petrov. The club promotes the music of Old Russia that is our heritage. It organizes concerts, radio shows, as well as Festivals of the Songs of the Russian Diaspora. The clubs concerts were televised in the 1990s, but with the commercialization of television, such concerts are no longer aired. The Club has practically no sponsors.

Pyotr Leshchenko The Club maintains the largest collection of recordings (LPs) of singers and musicians of Russian Diaspora in the world.

In the Peter Lescenco Clubs files are singers, musicians, choruses, and instrumental ensembles from Moscow, Russia and from throughout the world, both active and retired, as well as relatives of performers who have passed away.

Russian New Year's characters Father Frost and Snow Maiden
Ded Moroz and Snegurochka (Russian: )

Father Frost and Snow Maiden are the most important characters of the New Year's celebration in Russia. Father Frost (Ded Moroz, Russian: ) plays a role similar to that of Santa Claus. The literal translation of the name would be "Grandfather Frost". However, English-speakers traditionally translate "DED MOROZ" as the alliterative "FATHER FROST". Ded Moroz is always accompanied by his granddaughter Snegurochka - Snow Maiden (Russian: ).

New York based ensemble Barynya created a special Russian New Year's program with traditional Russian winter songs, dances and music: "In the forest a fir-tree was born" (V Lesu Rodilas' Yolochka), "Small Fir Tree is Freezing during the Winter" (Malen'koi Yolochke Kholdno Zimoy), "The snowstorm is blowing along the street" (Metelitsa), "Father Frost" (Moroz-Moroz), "Five minutes" (Pyat' Minut).

Ded Moroz and Snegurochka are available for hire in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania (within 100 miles driving distance from New York City). For a fast price quote contact Mikhail Smirnov
