The Golden Rooster is a Russian Children’s Folk Group founded in New York in 1995 by director Irina Zagornova. A native of Russia, Irina graduated from the Mussorgsky College of Music in St.Petersburg, where she studied folk singing and classical piano. Irina began the group as a way of preserving Russian folk traditions through a medley of singing, dancing, folk rituals, and musical games. Handmade folk costumes, lyrical love songs, and popular melodies make the group’s performances educational, original, and incredibly entertaining. The Golden Rooster has regularly performed at the United Nations, the Russian Consulate in New York, the Russian Embassy in Washington D.C., and many other local and international venues. In addition, they represented America in the International Russian Folk Festival in Moscow in October 2007. Iri na Zagornova also performs as a solo artist, and as a member of the adult trio Sudarushka, in collaboration with some of the most acclaimed Russian dancers and musicians in New York City. Irina Zagornova and the Golden Rooster are available for hire for public and private events.
