Hagia Sophia: The Sounds and Taste of Byzantium

Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia

UPDATE – Concert is Sold Out


“a sensual experience meant to induce a transcendent state” – San Francisco Classical Voice

For the first time in the Northwest, Cappella Romana performs its program of medieval Byzantine chant from Hagia Sophia in the stunning virtual acoustic developed at Stanford University.

The evening begins with a short documentary film detailing how Cappella Romana became the first ensemble in the world to sing in the recreated virtual acoustic of Hagia Sophia, followed by a fundraising dinner inspired by the flavors of Byzantium.

Don’t miss this other-worldly, all-encompassing journey to 13th-century Constantinople.

Seating for the gala dinner is extremely limited, and tickets for the full concert and dinner experience are no longer available for sale online. 

If you would like to attend the gala concert and dinner, please call 503-236-8202 to reserve a seat.

If you’re unable to attend, you can still support our Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia project with a tax-deductible contribution!


Seating for this concert is general admission and is not included in subscription packages.
