LYRA: A Concert of Russian Orthodox Church Music
September 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Friday, September 28, LYRA, an a cappella group of six professional vocalists from St. Petersburg, Russia, will present a concert of Russian choral music at St. Andrew’s. The first part of the concert – sacred music of Russian Orthodox church, includes ancient songs to works of famous masters and little-known but remarkable Russian composers of three centuries. The second part of their program is made up of Russian folk songs: comic, lyric, dancing, love songs. This is a wonderful opportunity to share the enormous Russian musical heritage and enjoy the sounds of Russia as interpreted by real Russians. All the singers are professionals singing in different professional choirs and opera houses of St. Petersburg.
The concert will last about an hour and is free to the public. A free will offering will be taken. This will be the third time we have hosted this group at our church and you are in for a special treat.
