Stepan Sveshnikov joined the chorus last year as its musical director. He has lived in many places, but you could say his hometown is Mucino, Oregon.
Stepan's first introduction to choral music was the incense-filled interior of the Russian church where his father served as priest. Though he plays classical piano and conducts genres from Sondheim to Mozart, Stepan’s true passion is the music of the slavic world, and it is with the Yale Russian Chorus that that passion has truly taken flight.
