Russian Vocal Ensemble to Perform in Scotch Plains Sunday September 11

LYRA – Baritone - Sergey Tupitsyn, Soprano - Anna Makarenko, Tenor - Denis Patsiuk, Mezzo-soprano - Olga Turkina, Bass – Aleksandr Kudriashov

SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- The LYRA singing ensemble from Saint Petersburg, Russia, returns to Scotch Plains on Sunday, September 11 at 4:00 p.m. They will offer their characteristically exceptional a Capella performance at All Saints' Episcopal Church, 559 Park Avenue, Scotch Plains. Tickets are $20 each at the door; the doors open at 3:30 p.m.

LYRA is a community of professional musicians. Most members are students or postgraduates of Saint Petersburg Conservatory of Music, working in different choirs around Saint Petersburg. Though the members represent different musical professions — choir conductors, opera singers, instrumentalists, music teachers — they are all united by their love for choir and ensemble singing.

The choir community LYRA includes about 25 people who usually tour in small groups of soloists consisting of four to six singers. In 2001 they were awarded the Montreux, Switzerland international choral festival diploma, and in 2005 they were the winners at the Coleraine International Choral Festival in Northern Ireland.

LYRA's performances draw from their wide-ranging interests, tapping the enormous heritage of the Russian Orthodox Church and the diverse traditions of Russian Folk music, which together promise to make the event one notable not only for the beauty of the music, but also as an opportunity to learn more about Russian history and culture. Among the composers whose work they are anticipated to perform are Bortniansky, Voilenko, Zinchenko, and Lvovsky.
