    Dear Mikhail Kharitonov,
    I first learned of your father after the terrible plane crash last Christmas. I saw his interview about the members of the Alexandrov Ensemble, and saw how devastated he was. I am sure that tragedy was hard for him to recover from.
    His performance of the “Dark-Eyed Cossack Girl” I find to be one of the most humorous and delightful things I have ever seen.
    My chorus, the Schiller Institute NYC Chorus, participated in a Memorial at the Teardrop Monument in Bayonne, NJ, and will be laying a wreath in memory of the Alexandrov Ensemble again this year on January 6th.
    We would be honored to read a short statement from you about your late father and/or the Alexandrov Ensemble on this occasion. Please contact me, if you wish to send something. It can be in Russian. My sincere condolences on the death of your father. He was a very profound and good person.

    To Mr. Mikhail Kharitonov

    Dear Mr. Kharitonov,

    I would like to offer to you my sincere condolences for
    your loss of your father. It is never easy to lose a parent
    as they are the anchors of our lives. I can see by the great
    and tender care with which you maintain and host this site
    and the Youtube channel for your late father how much he
    meant to you.
    I was introduced to your father’s singing when last year
    a very precious friend sent to me the video of your father’s
    performance of “Ey, Ukhnem!” at the Tschaikovsky Hall in
    1965. And your father instantly became one of my most
    favourite singers. I think that several of the visitors at Youtube
    are right about his magnificent voice, it was like thunder
    not speak of its warmth and depth. From your Talking With
    My Father series and other videos like the BBC interview,
    I could hear and see that your father was a very warm, kind and gentle
    man. I could also see how very proud Boris Alexandrov was of your
    father, as after his performance of “Ey, Ukhnem!” he hugged
    your father, and I understood from Wikipedia that Boris Alexandrov
    often showed his pride of your father. And the video of your father’s
    visit together with Ivan Bukreev, Alexei Sergeev and Arthur Eisen
    to Boris Alexandrov was very touching. And I loved how they all sang
    for Boris Alexandrov. I also loved how Boris Alexandrov’s little dog only
    responded to your father’s singing during this visit
    Besides your father, Evgeny Belyaev, Alexei Sergeev and Ivan Bukreev
    and the Alexandrov Ensemble in its entirety also belong to my most
    favourite singers, Their- and your father’s singing helped me through
    me many tough moments.
    I realise that it takes time to truly develop a voice, but as your father
    sang for twelve years in the choir of the Alexandrov Ensemble, it was
    still a long time before he became a soloist.
    And thank you for hosting and maintaining this site and the Youtube

    Kind regards,

    Does mr Kharitonov allow autographs for his fans? I hope it is not presumptuous to ask.
