BECOME A MEMBER

Since our creation in 2003, RCC has grown from a personal dream of our founder, Sophia Grinblat, into a dynamic team of board members dedicated to bringing diverse Russian cultural events to Texas. In 2007, RCC opened a venue in the heart of the Houston Museum District area, which serves as a refuge for local art lovers, exhibition space, workshop classroom, concert hall and film screening site. Our other event venues include Jones Hall, Wortham Center, Texas universities and local community centers.

“I joined and thus began my unique and most enjoyable membership! Not a month passes without some well though-out and professionally presented event at RCC. Because of its intimate setting, one always feels the immediacy of the performance. I’ve enjoyed many art gallery tours, concerts, films, and special events.” –Member Olga Bennett

“In addition to offering festivities around traditional Russian holidays like “Old Russian New Year,” language classes for adults and children, lectures, and film series, RCC sponsors numerous art and photography exhibits throughout the year showcasing local and internationally-recognized artists. The featured art may be offered for sale, and my own home is enriched by a number of these items – photos from Kaliningrad, signed prints created for limited edition books, and Soviet-era posters.

My favorite offerings are performances of classical music in the intimate gallery setting, featuring faculty and students from local music schools, members of the Houston Grand Opera studio, and Houston Symphony’s former maestro Hans Graf performing a composer’s music and discussing his life and approach to composition.

Where else might you find these kinds of opportunities, even in a dynamic and culturally-diverse city like Houston? Come join us and take advantage of all that this unique organization has to offer!” – Member Donna Collins

You can help us expand our cultural activities and art programs and continue to bring your favorite events year after year. With your personal membership, we can make our events an even greater success!
