The Rachmaninoff Vespers stands at the pinnacle of a Russian choral renaissance launched by composers of the 1880's New Russian School seeking to create a uniquely Russian sound. Voices ranging from unison to 12 parts reshape ancient unison chants into a unique and richly orchestrated choral tapestry. Presented in the acoustically vibrant, cathedral-like lobby of the Meyerson Symphony Center, this unusual and uplifting musical event is sure to reverberate in your memory for a long time to come. Ticket prices (in advance) $20 General Admission, $15 Seniors (ages 65 and up) and $5 for Students. For more information about the concert, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
