In the Footsteps of St. Demetrios

Cappella Romana

Alexander Lingas
Founder & Director

Cappella Romana brings to life the vibrant soundscape of medieval Thessaloniki. Hear ancient hymns honoring the city’s patron: the ever-popular St. Demetrios, sung on the weekend of his annual feast day.

Experience ecstatic Byzantine chants for the saint adorning the rite of Hagia Sophia of Constantinople, sung by the women and men of Cappella.

Followed by a residency sponsored by UCLA with a concert and recording session for future release, with the chants sung in acoustic auralizations of medieval churches in Thessaloniki.
