Next to the Zarjanka ensemble there are two amateur ensembles: Zarnitsa in Utrecht and Wjetsherinki in Wageningen. The amateur chorus “Zarnitsa” (at sunrise) rehearses weekly on Friday night in community center Zuilen in Utrecht. The amateur choir ‘ Wjetsherinki ‘ (cosy evenings) rehearses weekly on Wednesday evening in the Pomhorst in Wageningen. A selection from the repertoire of Zarjanka is also in Wjetsjerinki and Zarnitsa performed.
These ensembles are open to new members, with or without musical background, who are prepared to make the repertoire own. Advanced members can move up to the Zarjanka ensemble in course of time.
