The Russian Department frequently presents concerts by the immensely popular folk group, Zolotoi plios "Golden Strand." The colorful ensemble offers lively interpretations of folk songs and instrumental music. Its members, Sergei Gratchev, Elena Sadina and Aleksandr Solovov (left to right) are all graduates of the Saratov Music Conservatory of Saratov, Russia.

A highlight of the Language Schools calendar for the past several summers, Zolotoi plios most recently presented a special program for children, hosted by the Office of the President and the Russian Department, on April 6, 2014.
