Church of the Covenant
Coro Allegro returns to the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff for a performance of The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. One of Rachmaninoff’s major compositions, St. John Chrysostom is a setting of a worship service of the Eastern Orthodox Church, featuring rich, chant-like, unaccompanied singing.
Coro Allegro’s 2005 performance of Rachmaninoff’s other great liturgical work, All-Night Vespers, was one of our most popular concerts, and attendees and others have repeatedly asked to hear similar compositions. Rarely heard in Boston, this major Rachmaninoff composition, performed in the magnificent Church of the Covenant, is certain to be a deeply spiritual experience for audience members across all faith traditions and communities.
The concert will be at Church of the Covenant, 67 Newbury St., in Boston's Back Bay.
Tickets are $18/$28/$38 with $5 off for students/seniors with ID.
