ONE WEEK FROM TODAY! ORIENT: Sacred Song and Image
Date: April 30, 2012
Location: New York, USA
Choir type: Choirs with Religious Affiliation
In a multi-media program that interweaves luminous icons, sacred texts, and a rich a cappella sound, the St. Vladimir's Seminary Chorale will perform ORIENT: Sacred Song and Image at the famous St. Malachy's,"The Actors' Chapel," in the heart of Manhattan, at 239 West 49th Street, New York City. This stirring concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, May 7th, 2012.
The concert program will include pieces from the broader Orthodox tradition sung in their original languages— Greek, Georgian, Estonian, Slavonic—as well as choral music by Orthodox composers written for the concert hall. Two visual projections—one of images of Orthodox icons and the other of translations of musical texts—will run simultaneously as the chorale sings. Icons, music, and text will expound one another, just as they do within the Orthodox liturgy.
Tickets are $25 and may be purchased online at www.svots.edu. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the door.
