26th Russian Song Festival – KSP

WHEN: April 15 – 17, 2016

WHERE: Lake Tombigbee Campgrounds, Livingston, TX

ADMISSION: $20.

KSPOur guests: Leonid Sergeev, Dmitry Bikchentaev

KSP-South is a group of enthusiastic people that organizes biannual gatherings called Slyots (literally translated as “fly-ins”) and helps unite all Russian-speaking people who enjoy the Russian style of camping.

KSP in translation stands for the Club of Amateur Song. These songs are usually written by average people about their ordinary lives, yet the simple human experience of each song is translated into a powerful message of wisdom and truth, about the value of friendship, family, and love.

Slyots of KSP-South are held twice a year, and organizers try very hard to make everyone feel welcome, even those whose song selection varies slightly from the traditional KSP style. By bringing together the Russian speaking community, KSP-South not only allows them to experience their culture, but also to expose their spouses, children and friends to this beautiful Russian tradition.

With questions write to us at KSPsouth@gmail.com or call at 713-395-3301. Also, if you (or someone you know) would like to receive email reminders from us regarding KSP events, please let us know.

The sleigh travels to a snowy forest where Rudolph’s nose has become frozen in the snow storm. The lovely Snow Queen comes to help Santa with a wonderful way to warm Rudolph’s nose. Then the sleigh continues to the home where Santa leaves gifts. After the story, Jean Kuecher reveals the special effects and back stage secrets.
