A wonderful gift to the participants of the 65th Russian Gal Ball was prepared by its organizers.

The concert program featured guests from St. Petersburg – the Aquarelle quintet.


The “Aquarelle” was created in 2006. Over the years, the quintet has already gained fame both in Russia and abroad.

All participants of the “Aquarelle” quintet are acting soloists of the opera houses of St. Petersburg – the Mariinsky Theater and the Looking Glass Theater, prize-winners of many international festivals. The brightness and power of a cappella voices are combined with the artistry and charisma of each of them, conveying the shades of the musical palette, like watercolour paints.


In their repertoire, there are many romances: from ancient, urban, to classical and modern. The romances are performed only in their own arrangements, therefore, in each of the different singer’s solos, having the opportunity to show the brightness and individuality of their voices.

We are pleased to present to the guests of the Russian Gala Ball a wonderful talented team from Russia!
