Russians to visit MOUNTSORREL this Spring
Five talented Russians singers, the St Petersburg Blagovest Ensemble, will be visiting Leicestershire as part of a UK tour. They will be staying with local hosts and performing a concert at Mountsorrel Methodist Church (LE12 7JB) on Saturday May 18th 2013 commencing at 7pm.
Tickets, £6. each are obtainable from Geoff. Wainwright – tel. 0116 237 6979 or e.mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The ensemble sings unaccompanied, following a rich Russian musical tradition going back a thousand years, but with a modern twist. The programme combines sublime, intensely spiritual Russian Orthodox Church Music with the zest for life and humour of Russian folk songs, and an occasional UK favourite.
We are delighted to welcome the ensemble back to Mountsorrel after last year’s successful evening. It is a talented group who sing wonderful music to a professional standard and is sure to give us an evening to remember.
