An Afternoon At the Grammy Awards Was A First For PaTRAM

On Sunday, February 10th, 2019, we made our first red carpet appearance at the 61st Grammy Awards in Los Angeles! It was truly an honor to be nominated and it was certainly a day to remember. PaTRAM has only been in existence for five short years and many musicians, choirs or otherwise, go decades without nomination. We wish to congratulate Donald Nally and “The Zealot Canticles” for their win in the category of “Best Choral Performance” – it was a privilege to be nominated alongside you.

We especially want to thank Alex and Katya Lukianov, Executive Producers of “Teach Me Thy Statutes”, Maestro Vladimir Gorbik, the Conductor of the PaTRAM Institute Male Choir, Blanton Alspaugh and John Newton, our Producer and Sound Engineer, respectively, from Sound Mirror, Marcia Martin from our label Reference Recordings, and of course each of the wonderful forty-two members of the PaTRAM choir. We look forward to another opportunity on the red carpet next year with our new CD releasing this spring!

Additionally, we wish to congratulate Blanton Alspaugh on winning the 2018 Grammy Award for Producer of the Year! Mr. Alspaugh produced Teach Me Thy Statutes and is a frequent collaborator with PaTRAM. Congratulations!

And we want to congratulate the Clarion Choir for their Grammy nomination for Memory Eternal! Alex and Katya were executive producers of their CD as well.

PaTRAM was very well-represented in Los Angeles. Alex and Katya Lukianov attended the awards along with their children Elizabeth, Cassandra, Alexander and Anastasia, Maestro Gorbik, his wife Svetlana, and other friends and supporters of PaTRAM.
