Choir rehearsing at Grace Mennonite Church, St. Catharines. Conducted by Henry Willms; pianist is Lena Fransen. It appears that the choir is being recorded. This choir sang Russian hymns. The recordings were recorded by an organization in the United States for broadcast into Russia. Written on back of one of the copies: "This is a picture of the 'Russian choir.' During the 1960's this group of persons who could read Russian (and speak it) sang and the hymns were beamed to Russia for Mennonites living in the Soviet Union. This was during the 'Cold War.'"
