OCN would like to congratulate Dr. Vladimir Morosan for producing the winning score of this year’s Grammy for “Best Choral Performance.” Dr. Morosan and his wife, Helen Levenetz, are the program directors of OCN’s RUDDER, a 24/7 Internet Radio station providing Orthodox sacred music to reach people throughout the world and in all walks of life. He is also the founder of Musica Russica, the largest publisher of Russian choral music outside of Russia.
On the recent award, Morosan congratulated Charles Bruffy and the Kansas City and Phoenix Chorales. He said, “For the third time in the last ten years, recordings of Russian Orthodox sacred music have won Grammys. We are thrilled that choral artists are bringing this music to life, using our editions and making the world a more beautiful place!”
