The Konevets Quartet was founded in 1992 by four young musicians from the St. Petersburg Conservatoire who were singing in the choir of the Konevets Monastery of the Holy Nativity on the island of Konevets in Lake Ladoga. Their first audiences were the people working on the restoration of the monastery, and the pilgrims and tourists who came to the island.

All the members of the ensemble studied at the St Petersburg Glinka Choir College. Trained in the tradition of Russian song, the Konevets Quartet is not just a group of individual soloists, but is in essence a chamber choir dedicated to creating a perfect harmonious ensemble sound.

At the heart of their repertoire is Russian church music, from ancient material written for the monasteries to works by 20th century composers. The earliest church music is sung in unison or in arrangement for two or three voices, and in contemporary four-voice arrangements, many of them written by members of the Konevets Quartet.

Apart from church music, their concert programs often include a variety of Russian folk songs and military songs and marches from the days of the Imperial army — songs which were all but lost during Soviet times. The repertoire also draws on settings of Russian poems arranged for male voice choirs by Russian classical composers.

The Konevets Quartet has participated in leading international festivals in Russia, Great Britain, the US, France, Italy, Ireland and Scandinavia. Their recordings are on sale in many countries, and have received high acclaim from critics and the music press. A concert or a recording by the Konevets Quartet always offers a fascinating program, and the chance to learn more of the rich tradition of Russian choral music and the music of the male voice chamber choir.

First come, first serve seating.  Refreshments will follow the concert.  Admission is a suggested donation of $10.  Proceeds will go towards helping the ongoing restoration of Konevets Monastery.  For more information, please call 201-841-3471.

Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Randolph, NJ, is sponsoring a series of events and other projects to mark its 50th anniversary. The parish was founded by a small group of Orthodox Christians who wanted to practice their faith locally.  At first, their liturgies took place in Knox Hall of the First Presbyterian Church in Dover. The new parish moved into their present home in 1968.

In addition to the Konevets Quartet concert, the Church’s other anniversary activities include a Wine Tasting in April, an International Festival on September 20th, production of a CD recording by the parish choir, and a hierarchical liturgy and banquet on October 5th.  Rev. David R. Fox, Rector, says, “We want our 50th anniversary to be exciting for our parishioners and also for the community where we live.”  More information on Holy Trinity’s plans can be found at its Facebook page (Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, Randolph) and its website:  www.holytrinityrandolph.com.
