      Slavyanka MenÂ’s Russian Chorus and Women Singers Present
      In honor of the 140th and 70th anniversaries of his birth and deathÂ…


      “Rachmaninoff Known and Unknown�


      Lovers of choral music wonÂ’t want to miss one of these three
      opportunities to hear glorious choral music from one of RussiaÂ’s
      greatest composers. YouÂ’ve heard his dazzling piano and orchestral
      compositions, now come hear some of Rachmaninoff 's equally amazing
      choral works, including selections from his beloved “Vespers� and less
      well known “Liturgy� -- some of the most moving pieces of sacred music
      ever written -- plus rarely heard secular romances, "Three Russian Folk
      Songs" with piano accompaniment, and a beautiful choral concerto that
      Rachmaninoff wrote when he was just twenty years old.


      These concerts will feature SlavyankaÂ’s traditional menÂ’s choir,
      augmented by our new Slavyanka Women Singers, a forty voice ensemble in
      all, led by SlavyankaÂ’s exciting new artistic director Irina Shachneva.
      If you havenÂ’t seen Slavyanka recently, check out our YouTube videos
