My husband and I were very impressed by the high caliber of the performance, and especially loved the second half of the program which included wonderful Russian songs in addition to the charming Dvorak song cycle. The program was very informative, and the venue beautiful and intimate.
Some the selections include:
Antonín Dvorák Six Moravian Choruses
Sergei Rachmaninoff Bogoroditse Devo
Dmitri Bortnyansky Cherubic Hymn No. 7
Alexander Gretchaninoff Our Father
Alexander Gretchaninoff Nunc Dimmitis
Nicolai Kedrov Otche Nash
Modest Mussorgsky (attributed): Angel Vopiyashe (The Angel Cried Out)
Sid Robinovitch Prayer Before Sleep from “Talmud Suite”
Franz Schubert Mass No. 2 in G
Please note that no children under the age of 5 wil be allowed to attend. There will, however, be free admission for children ages 5 to 18.
