A Cappella Choir Invited to Sing in Russia

The Samford A Cappella Choir will perform in two of Russia's most prestigious halls, Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow and Capella Hall and Pavlovsk Palace in St. Petersburg, this spring.

The Russian Ministry of Culture invited the choir to perform in the country during late May and early June, which will provide "extraordinary opportunities for our students," said School of Music Dean Milburn Price.

The A Cappella Choir will sing a varied program of choral repertoire, including works by historic classical composers Christopher Tye, J. S. Bach and Johannes Brahms, 20th-century American composers Morten Lauridsen, Edwin Fissinger, Paul Christiansen and John Ness Beck, and spirituals.

The choir also will sing concertos by Dmitri Bortnianski, widely considered "the Russian Mozart," Price noted. The year 2001 marks the 250th anniversary of Bortnianski's birth.
