To acquaint you with the Osanna Chamber Ensemble, we are happy to present a short clip of their 2022 concert. ENJOY! Click on the photo below.
The choir is comprised of the best student and young professional singers from around the U.S., under the leadership of John Arlievsky, conductor. Currently, the choir is preparing to perform Arvo Part’s masterpiece – Kanon Pokajanen. Please join us!! By attending concerts and sponsoring singers you are supporting the next generation of Church Musicians and preserving a treasured art form.
The concerts will take place in the Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Cathedral in NYC. The Cathedral is a beautiful and historic building. The ceremony of laying the cornerstone took place on May 22, 1901, the day of the Feast of Translation, commemorating the transfer of the relics of St. Nicholas from Myra in Lycia, Asia Minor, to Bari, Italy in 1087. On November 23, 1902, a consecration service, the first to be held in the completed church, was led by Bishop Tikhon, the head of the Russian Church in the Aleutian Islands and North America.
We invite you along this life-lifting journey, embodied by the artistry of Arvo Pärt, set in a glorious church venue and performed by the Osanna Chamber Ensemble.
Thank you for your generous support!
