Young Russian musicians are crossing the pond to perform at a northwest side church.

Moscow Nights/Golden Gates, a group of Russian and Georgian musicians and dancers, will put on a show at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church, 1431 W. Magee Road, at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 28.

Founded in 1993, the group performs pieces based on Russian folklore and hinges on audience participation. Performers range from age 12 to 21.
