Here’s a special, post-holiday treat to look forward to!

 

In mid-January, the Slavyanka Russian Chorus presents Slavic Winterfest – a concert of Orthodox Christmas hymns, carols, and folk songs in various languages celebrating cozy houses, Christmas in January, and the sparkling dazzle of a bright, snow covered landscape after winter darkness. 

This winter concert series will feature three different choir arrangements:

 

The Slavyanka Women’s Chorus will perform carols from Romania, Russia, Bulgaria, and Ukraine.

 

The Slavyanka Men’s Chorus will perform carols and folk songs from Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia, as well traditional Russian coachmen pieces.

 

The combined Chorus will perform traditional carols from Serbia, Russia, and Ukraine, including two contemporary winter compositions from the renowned Russian composer Georgij Sviridov.

 

For this concert series, the Chorus will be joined by Iskra Etno, a wonderful group of Serbian women whose love of Balkan choral music is highly contagious. In addition to pieces about weddings and marriage, Iskra Etno will also sing garlands about Slavic winter songs and Serbian Christmas.

 

For more information, please contact us. This concert is not to be missed!
