PaTRAM Institute™ came to the forefront of the world stage by earning its first Grammy nomination in 2019 in the category of Best Choral Performance for the Teach Me Thy Statutes album. The CD also garnered MusicWeb International’s 2018 Recording of the Year award. Teach Me Thy Statutes features the work of famed Russian composer, Pavel Chesnokov and represents some of the Orthodox world’s greatest music. The PaTRAM Institute Male Choir, comprised of 42 Russian and American singers, with a massive bass section, collaborated to immerse the listener into the authentic Russian monastic style of singing. Grammy nominated Maestro Vladimir Gorbik, whose pedigree is from the Moscow Conservatory, skillfully united strong musicianship with superb diction to create the heavenly sound that epitomizes the very best cultural singing of the Russian Orthodox Church. Maestro Gorbik is the acclaimed choirmaster of the Holy Trinity–St. Sergius Lavra Representation Choir in Moscow, Russia. PaTRAM Institute co-founders Alexis and Katherine Lukianov served as Executive Producers. Teach Me Thy Statutes was the first release for PaTRAM Institute recorded and mastered by the multi-Grammy winner and nominee, Soundmirror and is distributed by the multi-Grammy winning recording label, Reference Recordings. The album was recorded in the Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian Orthodox Church, at the Saratov Orthodox Theological Seminary.

UPDATE 2/27: Glory to God, the monastery finally had its power restored last night after an outage of nearly two weeks following the severe ice storm of Feb 15th. However, phones and internet service are still down and the divine services are therefore unable to be live-streamed.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however our stock has been heavily depleted since production was severely debilitated during the weeks we had only generator power. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
We are still working to repair all the damage done by the ice storm. This has been greatly aided by the overwhelming outpouring of support from people across the country and even across the world, for which we are extraordinarily grateful. May God richly reward all the hundreds of people who have stepped forward to help us in our time of need!
Above all, we are grateful for everyone's prayers. Please continue to pray for us, and be assured of our unworthy prayers for you!
