Spring - 2023

Slavyanka to Present American Premiere of 100-Year-Old Choral Masterwork

This spring, Slavyanka will offer three performances of a major Russian masterwork, Konstantin Shvedoff’s Liturgy. It is a musical setting of the principal service of the Russian Orthodox Church, and has never been performed before in America. While almost entirely unknown to Western audiences, in its musical experimentation and innovation it has its place with the much better known Vespers by his contemporary Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Russian Diaspora

The Russian diaspora is the global community of ethnic Russians. The Russian-speaking (Russophone) diaspora are the people for whom Russian language is the native language. A large community (sometimes including Russian-speaking non-Russians), estimated at over 20–30 million people, has developed all over the world, with notable numbers in the United States, Germany, Brazil, and Canada.

Relatively unknown is the understanding and momentousness of the 1000-year-old Russian sacred choral music tradition. Slavyanka hosted a webinar presented by Dr. Vladimir Morosan about this tradition. He is the Director of the "Orthodox Sacred Music Reference Library” Project, the largest scholarly online library of Orthodox music.
