Rachmaninoff All-Night Vigil (Vespers) – CANCELLED

We are sad to announce that due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are canceling our April performances of Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil on April 25th and 26th. While we have not formally announced our 2020-2021 season, we are hoping to perform the Rachmaninoff in October and will release more information about our upcoming season this summer.

While better known for his romantic and virtuosic piano concertos, Rachmaninoff’s monumental All-Night Vigil is a crowning achievement of Russian Orthodox choral music and a haunting cornerstone of the choral repertoire from a composer at the peak of his creative powers. Join us for a contemplative experience with one of the most sublime choral works ever written.

Adult/Senior – $18 in advance; $25 at the door
Student – $5 in advance and at the door

Saturday, April 25, 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, April 26, 3:00 p.m.
