Please join us on Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 4:30pm as Trinity Stoughton hosts LYRA, a Russian a cappella group currently touring the Northeast.
LYRA which in Russian means, “inspiration” is a vocal ensemble whose singers are from a number of churches in Saint Petersburg. LYRA travels the US to encourage music and share their cultural heritage around the world.
LYRA produces a pure a cappella sound that both can fill a space and drop to an edge-of-your-seat whisper. The group’s clear harmonies give a sense of how the unique flavor of Orthodox music persists, in both the clean bright music of 17th-century composer Dmitri Bortniansky and the aching chromatics of turn-of-the-last-century composer Pavel Tchesnokov.
After a number of traditional Orthodox music pieces, the singers’ post-intermission will feature their entry in traditional dress and to sing Russian folk tunes bringing everything back to earth with toe tapping fun for all ages.
The simpler music offered showcase solos for most of the singers, and lots of broad acting. LYRA is a performance not to be missed!
Let’s make this a great event at Trinity, invite your family and friends to this wonderful concert!
Tickets are $15.00, Children $10.00
