The Glory of Russian Music 

It has been said that the Russians have "a special gift for sadness." You will hear some of that in this concert, but you'll also hear uplifting, touching, and triumphant music—all from Mother Russia.  In the first half of the program, we'll hear keyboard music of Scriabin, Rachmaninov, Kabalevsky, and Shostakovich played by pianists David Olachea and Martin Morley.  In the second half, Russian choral works sung by the Chromatica chorus, under the direction of David Huff.
