“The Patriarch Tikhon Russian-American Music Institute™ strives to present Orthodox sacred music in its highest possible form, uniting deep spirituality, a profound love for the rich traditions of Orthodox Christian singing, and an uncompromising standard of musical professionalism rooted in the great traditions of Russian choral composers. In addition, we seek out unique church venues for our recordings to couple the music with an acoustically rich, Orthodox Worship environment.”
– Alexis and Katherine Lukianov, Cofounders of PaTRAM Institute™
As part of our mission, PaTRAM Institute wishes to share the beauty and enjoyment of Orthodox Choral Music with the world! Our goal is to produce the highest quality, professional recordings of sacred choral treasures, sung in their most authentic and prayerful form. We wish for our CDs to serve as inspirational models to which parish choirs can aspire and to bring comfort, joy and peace, through music, to humanity.
To achieve our goals and vision, we have brought together the best professional and amateur choristers, highly esteemed conductors, and have partnered with multi-Grammy Award winning production company, Soundmirror, multi-Grammy winning recording label, Reference Recordings and our new partner, multi-Grammy winning recording label, Chandos Records. In just a few short years, PaTRAM Institute choirs have received two Grammy nominations and earned a place amongst the world’s greatest choral ensembles. For the first time, Orthodox music has come to the forefront of the world stage.
PaTRAM Institute is committed to sharing the gift of timeless, sacred masterpieces with many generations to come.
