The RED STAR Red Army Chorus and Dance Ensemble was founded in January 1977 in Moscow as part of the Strategic Rocket Forces of USSR. Initially, the ensemble was formed for purposes of leisure, performing exclusively for the troops, cultivating homeland pride, and raising the cultural status of soldiers.
The ensemble’s program will feature musical selections from their repertoire of more than 200 compositions for chorus, vocal soloists and orchestra, including patriotic anthems, traditional folk tunes, and classical compositions by Russian and international composers. Featured dances will include the Cossacks’ Dance, the Ukrainian Hopak Dance, and other traditional folkloric and military pieces.

Rabovsky entered the Soviet Army in 1971, where he served as a choral conductor of a Local Army Division Ensemble of Song & Dance. Upon leaving the military in 1981, he was invited to be an assistant conductor of the RED STAR Red Army Chorus & Dance Ensemble. When the leader of the Ensemble retired in 2009, Rabovsky was awarded the position of Chief Conductor and promoted to the rank of Colonel.
