Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble performs "Let My Prayer Arise"
Let My Prayer Arise
Music of faith in troubled times

With special guests
String Chamber Orchestra, Cecilia Archuleta, concertmaster
Joseph Adam, St. James Cathedral Organist

From the great Romantic choral works of Sergei Rachmaninoff to contemporary pieces by Baltic composers Arvo Part, Peteris Vasks and Arturs Maskats, we celebrate a rich choral tradition of prayerful and inspirational music that unites people through faith. The program will include movements from Rachmaninoff's "All Night Vigil", celebrating the 100th anniversary of the premiere of this masterpiece. Other Russian composers include Borniansky, Grechaninov, Sviridov and Schnittke, as well as Ukrainian composers David Nowakowsky and Mykola Leontovych, who was the first to set an Orthodox liturgy in the modern Ukrainian language.

The 48-voice choir will be joined by a string orchestra and Cathedral Organist, Joseph Adam. Please join us in the splendid acoustic space of St. James Cathedral for a powerful choral experience.
