"To Russia with Love, is a fifteen minute video about the Chorale's plans, hopes and dreams to sing in Moscow, St. Petersburgh, and Yarolslavl in June. The upcoming trip has been a dream of the Chorale's Artistic Director, Janet McGhee, since she founded the Chorale thirteen years ago. Janet took choruses from Boston to Russia four times in the 1980's. She is excited to finally take members of her Battenkill Chorale to Russia." --John Oakley

Kerri Countryman - Choreographer

"I'm interested in the human body's relationship and/or reaction to space, music, rhythm and emotion."

"As I explore movement as a sensory experience, I strive for authenticity and an understanding of what brings us together and what separates us as human beings."
