About Leonid Kharitonov's Patron Fan Club

DEAR FANS OF LEONID KHARITONOV’S ART
AND THE ADMIRERS OF THE RED ARMY CHOIR!

My name is Mikhail Kharitonov and I'm the son of the famed Russian operatic singer Leonid Mikhailovich Kharitonov, bass-baritone (1933-2017). The singer’s diverse repertoire includes Russian folk songs, Russian romances (a genre unique to Russian music), opera arias and patriotic songs from the Soviet era.

I created this and other pages for the true fans of my father's art, so they could broaden their horizons and reach out to the beautiful vocal art of Leonid Kharitonov, a man who devoted almost 60 years of his life to singing, including 20 years of working for the Alexandrov Red Army Choir as a leading soloist.

Unfortunately Leonid Kharitonov and many of his colleagues are almost forgotten nowadays. That is the reason why I have been trying to preserve the memory of my father and some other gems of the Russian culture for the last two decades. I inherited my father's personal archive, which I'm trying to sort out when I have time. I started working with the archive when my father was alive and it gave me a lot of very interesting materials of all kinds such as articles, letters, photos, video and audio recordings, which I scan and share with the growing audience of trustful fans.

Also I have some other tasks and obligations in order to preserve the memory of my father, such as making a memorial monument at his grave, publishing a book about his life, searching and buying his never-seen records from the State archives and many other important tasks that I hope to achieve some day.

All these goals require additional investments, as you can understand. And I hope that some of you will wish to help me in realizing those and other tasks. So, please, join this Fan Club and become one of our Patrons!

As a Patron Fan you will get an exclusive access to all my work, research and plans. You will:

  • be the first one to watch all the new selected and renovated videos
  • get access to exclusive videos and photos from my father's archive
  • be able to download and listen to the artist’s audio songs
  • be offered some unique themed goods like CD's, posters, books, etc.
  • and enjoy many more other benefits within this platform.

Like I wrote before, all your donations will go towards the achievement of the following plans and goals:

  • to renovate, remaster and translate new videos
  • to scan and digitize some hardcopy 8mm films from the private archive
  • to buy some never seen video recordings of the artists performances from the State TV and Radio archive
  • to make a memorial monument at my father's gravesite
  • to publish a book about his life. I hope it will be in English as well
  • to manage and maintain all his official web sites and accounts in social networks.
And some other points that I might have forgotten to mention!

So, please, join our Patron Fan Club and you will help me to preserve the memory of Leonid Kharitonov's vocal art.


Personally from me to all our new Patron Fans - thank you very, very much for your kind support!

Sincerely,
Mikhail Leonidovich Kharitonov

55% complete
Hard Disk Drive (2Tb) for Backups

I will have to buy another hard drive disk (HDD) for the backup of all my father's archive media files. Unfortunately the previous disk got old and completely crashed just some time ago. The new HDD should have the capacity of 2TB or more.
