Proclaiming joy to all the world
On January 27, 2017, the Student Society of Saint Tikhons University, Horizont, staged an evening of music-making at the Universitys Kuznetsy campus. The event, entitled Proclaiming joy to all the world (Troparion of the Nativity of the Mother of God, Tone 4), was dedicated to the Christmas traditions of different countries all around the world.

The evening saw performances by the volunteer ensemble of the Student Society; an ensemble consisting of current students and graduates of the universitys Faculties of Church Music and Church Arts; Boris Stegachev (alto, current student of the Faculty of Languages); and several guests of the Student Society, including pianist Olga Brezhneva of the Gnesin State Musical Academy, guitarist/singer Semyon Ilyaguev and violinist Alexei Barashev from the band Nothing Personal, and also guitarist/singer Dimitry Koledin.

Over the course of the evening, the hall resonated with the sounds of both classical music and folk songs, interspersed with contemporary pieces and guitar accompaniment. Yet these different genres gathered together under one roof did not work against each other, but rather were complementary: the piano music elevated the event, the guitar added vivacity, and the voice of the choir served as a call to glorify the newborn Christ-Child.
