We were lucky enough to catch their concert at St Stephen's in Bristol, which was superb... Four fabulous voices, who work brilliantly together. Thank You


Boris Totokin


Hello, I am the leader of Nikolsky Ensemble. My aim is to promote Russian a cappella music. Singing and choral conducting is my passion and main occupation for about 10 years.

Before founding the Ensemble I’ve been a singer in a big choir of St. Nicholas Monastery in Saratov and then conducted everyday choir there. I was working with Saratov Conservatoire students and graduates, whom I then invited to join the Ensemble.

The line-up of the ensemble varies every tour due to other musical jobs of the singers. As a result, it is always a unique sound made by fine blend of voices.
