Russian men’s ensemble celebrates morning prayer at Trinity Solebury

The St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble, an a cappella group from Russia, will perform Sunday at Trinity Episcopal Church, Solebury.

Trinity Episcopal Church, 6587 Upper York Road, Solebury, welcomes the St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble at its 9:30 a.m. service on Sunday, Nov. 12.

The ensemble will present a varied repertoire of sacred pieces fitting into the Morning Prayer Liturgy.

The St. Petersburg Men’s Ensemble, an a cappella group from Russia, was formed as an independent group in 2003 to bring its audience compositions which, in normal circumstances, require many performers.

The quartet has developed an extensive repertoire encompassing a wide range of works from ancient Russian chants and chorals of Western Europe to modern music. Composers highlighted at Sunday’s Morning Prayer service include Rachmaninoff, Chesnokov, Kedrov and Ippolitov-Ivanov, as well as arrangements of well-known hymns.

The ensemble is comprised of Kirill Sokolov, Sergey Shapinskiy, Andrei Volikov and Vadim Smantser. They performs as part of the group’s popular annual tour through the United States. In addition to stage performances, they also work in sound record studios and have recorded three CDs. Their goal is to use music – the language of soul – to bring joy and unite all in harmony and love.

All are welcome to attend. For information, call 215-297-5135 or visit trinitysolebury.org.
