It all started a very long time ago. In far 1929, when Vladimir Nikolayevich Minin came to this world, a talented person, a great artist, creator, permanent artistic director and chief conductor of the Moscow Chamber Choir. But this would be a too long story (only imagine - 1929!), much has been said about this, written and even filmed.

At the age of 42 - September 1971 - Vladimir Nikolaevich Minin created and headed the chamber choir that consisted of students and teachers of the today's Russian Academy of Music named after Gnesin. The first concert took place a bit later - April 23, 1972. From that moment the history of the collective began, this day is considered the day of its birth.

Today Maestro Minin is 88. Unbeliveble! More than a half of his life – 45 years – Vladimir Nikolayevich dedicated to the development of his unique ensemble. And not in vain: today the Minin's Choir is recognized all over the world,
an outstanding conductors and musicians feel honoured to perfom with Maestro and contemporary composers devote him their works.
