MOSCOW, May 17. /TASS/. The Alexander Alexandrov Song and Dance Ensemble of the Russian Army and Navy, which is known worldwide as the Red Army or Alexandrov Choir is prepared to represent Russia at the Eurovision’2017 song contest in Ukraine if it receives a proposal to perform there, Gennady Sachenyuk, the artistic director of the choir told Govorit Moskva radio on Monday.
"We had an experience with participation (in a Eurovision contest) but not as an immediate entry," he said. "When Moscow hosted Eurovision several years ago, we presented a short solo programme there and if we have one more opportunity to appear in another Eurovision contest then we’re prepared to do it."
Sachenyuk added that the choir could perform as separate soloists or together as a group.
"Eurovision has restrictions on the number of participants but we’re ready to consider any proposals or to cooperate with other arts professionals," he said. "We’re prepared to consider and discuss any format of participation in the contest."
Eurovision’2016 finals were held on May 14 in Stockholm. The programme featured 26 performers - ten performing representing each round of the semi-finals and six representing Sweden as the host country, as well as Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, and France as the founders of the contest.
Ukrainian songstress Jamala took the first place with the song titled ‘1944’. Sergei Lazarev of Russia took the third place with the song ‘You Are the Only One’ composed by Russian pop star Filip Kirkorov.
