YALE RUSSIAN CHORUS IN CONCERT with support from the James and Tina Collias Liturgical Music fund
SUNDAY, APRIL 27, 2014 at 5 pm
St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 433 Fairfield Avenue, Hartford, CT 06114
"The Yale Russian Chorus (YRC), led by renowned Slavic music expert, Mark Bailey, is a repertory tenor-bass ensemble dedicated to learning and performing sacred and secular choral music from Slavic and related traditions. Founded in 1953, the YRC is recognized as one of the world's premier performance ensembles of Slavic music today. The chorus is composed of Yale undergraduates, graduate students, and New Haven community members. Its repertoire spans centuries of history and extends from Byzantine Greek liturgy to Ukrainian carols, from Russian patriotic anthems to Georgian toasting songs, from monophonic chant to gorgeous settings by 19th-century composers such as Tchaikovsky. The YRC has performed extensively for enthusiastic audiences at venues such Carnegie Hall, The White House and well-known churches and auditoriums throughout the country. Recent tours have included the Pacific Northwest, Florida, and Western New York and Ontario. The YRC is excited to be celebrating its 60th anniversary. We hope you will be able to join us for this night of music--foreign to some, a tradition for us!"
