Nikolsky Ensemble Concert – Sunday 6th October
Tickets are now available for a concert in Geddington Church by the Nikolsky Ensemble on Sunday 6th October, starting at 6.30pm Poster for concert
The four singers who form the Nikolsky Ensemble come from Saratov on the shores of the Volga. The Ensemble is undertaking a three-week tour of England and many of their concerts will be in much larger venues such as Bristol, Coventry and Exeter, so we are fortunate indeed to be able to welcome them to St Mary Magdalene Church in Geddington and hope that the event will be well supported.All members of the Ensemble are professional musicians and most are Saratov State Conservatoire graduates. They sing “a cappella“ (unaccompanied by any musical instruments) which is traditional for Russian Orthodox church music as musical instruments are not considered appropriate for church music. The first half of their concert will be Russian Orthodox Church music written by famous Russian classical composers since the 17th century; in the second half they will sing Russian folk and popular secular songs.
If you would like tickets please either e-mail or telephone 01536 746173. The tickets are £15, or £13 concessions (retired and unwaged) and £8 for students. There may be some tickets available at the door on the day but please check first before arriving. A wine bar will be available before the concert from 6pm and during the interval.
