The Vigil: Rachmaninoff's “Vespers”
This is Sergei Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil as you’ve never heard it before, directed by Slavic choral expert Benedict Sheehan from St. Tikhon’s Seminary, who last season conducted Cappella Romana in Peter Tchaikovsky’s Vigil.
Experience Rachmaninoff’s beloved masterpiece in the context of a more complete Orthodox Vigil, with Znamenny Chants for the Holy Cross and selections by Rachmaninoff’s Russian contemporaries.
Featuring super-star basso profundo Glenn Miller as soloist (Seattle and Portland only), this concert is not to be missed!
