Sergei Shapoval was at the White Shield School this past week to share the culture of his homeland. Now a U.S. citizen, Shapoval studied music in Russia and earned a master’s degree in music education from the Gnessin Pedagogoical Institute, Moscow. Among his many accomplishments is teaching music at Krivoi Rog, Ukraine – the city of his birth.
During his “Russian Kaleidoscope” presentation, Shapoval focused on Russian music, dance and art and culture. Enhancing his presentation was an assortment of items from Russia. Included were meticulously hand-crafted animated wood toys, colorful nesting dolls and other items of interest including military clothing.
