Slavic Wonders: Feasts and Saints in Ancient Moscow, Prague and Krakow Listen to music from this concert now!

A haunting and atmospheric experience of the music that resonated through these ancient cities. With soaring soprano lines, powerful harmonies and deep, sonorous textures, this concert mingles tales of folk heroes and saints with stunning 12-part motets from the Russian Orthodox tradition, magnificent double-choir works from the Polish Renaissance, and the mysterious chant of medieval Bohemia. Hailed by critics as "ethereal and captivating" with a "supernatural" vocal range and blend, The Rose Ensemble has presented this program to capacity crowds across the United States and Europe. Don't miss this showcase of the signature Rose sound before the group brings Slavic Wonders to Spain to represent the United States in an international choral competition.
