LYRA Vocal Ensemble is Coming to the US in 2015 Contact Them to Perform At Your Parish A Wonderful Evangelistic Opportunity


LYRA a Musical Group based in St Petersburg is planning its US tour.  You can make arrangements for them to visit your parish or town.  What a wonderful way to help spread the faith.
“Dear friends,
 
In May 2015, a Russian vocal group “LYRA” is going to the US with a concert tour. LYRA is a group of 5 members (females and males) who are professional opera singers or professional musicians of other music occupations. In 2001 we were awarded the Montreux (Switzerland) international choral festival diploma. In 2005 our group was also a winner of Coleraine International Choral Festival (Northern Ireland).
 
The main aim of our activity is to make Russian Church music well known in other countries by concerts and singing in ecumenical worships, and also to bring traditions of Russian folk music to people who are interested in Russia, its history and its culture. Our group regularly goes with concert tours to the US and European countries (Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, England, Ireland).
 
Now we are trying to get in touch with parishes, musicians, music organizations and all people in your country who are interested in a cappella music. If you want to meet richness of Russian musical heritage and invite our group to your church please contact us simply by answering this mail. This will be a great and unique experience for your congregation and community.
 
Every year, since 2001, we tour around the US. Over 150000 Americans have listened to us and could prove the quality of our performance. We have made friends with many people who, we are sure, will be glad to say a word for us. We will be delighted to provide you with some references.
 
If you have any questions we would be happy to answer all of them. At your request we can pleasantly send you some WEB links with VIDEO recordings of our singing from the concerts in the past.
 
We would be happy to sing for you and your community.
Kind regards,
LYRA vocal group
St. Petersburg, Russia”
