A Millennium of Music in 40 Years:
The Slavyanka Russian Chorus' Ruby Anniversary
Celebrate 40 years of the Slavyanka Russian Chorus with a festive reception party!
September 8, 2019 at 5:00pm
Patio Espanol Restaurant
2850 Alemany Blvd, San Francisco, CA
2019 marks the 40th anniversary year of the Slavyanka Russian Chorus –- and to celebrate, we’re hosting a GALA DINNER – an evening of music and memories for the whole Slavyanka Russian Chorus community – singers and listeners, alumni of the chorus, our many friends in the Bay Area Russian community, and all those who have been part of this long, wonderful, forty-year history, and people who want to support what this organization brings to the Bay Area.
In our existence, we've not only brought the liturgical and folk musics of Russia and Eastern Europe to home audiences across the Bay Area, the US and abroad, but we've also made 40 years of genuine, people-to-people connection through music that fosters relationships between Americans and Russians, regardless of governmental relations, and directly contributes to a more peaceful world. As we look to our next 40 years and beyond, we'll come together to celebrate, donate, and fundraise in order for the Chorus to continue our efforts.
