With the power of 300 voices, immerse yourself in the grandeur and romantic beauty of Tchaikovsky’s music. A celebration of centuries-old Russian orthodox tradition, The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, a precursor to Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, combines lush romanticism with an equally haunting and austere simplicity. VocalEssence and four of the region’s most acclaimed college choirs join forces to recreate the spirit of the premiere performance that Pyotr Tchaikovsky called “one of the happiest moments” of his career.
