Lyra is a vocal ensemble from St Petersburg.  All singers are professional muscians, singing in various churches of St Petersburg.  Some of them are also soloists at musical theatres of the city.  Through their performances they want to introduce the enormous musical heritage of the orthodox Russian church, as well as the traditions of Russian folk music to all people taking great interest in Russia, its history and its culture.

The programme for the evening will include sacred Russian Orthodox music including works by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov. The second part is Russian folk songs: comic, lyric, dance and love songs. The singers also wear costume appropriate to their music.

A Challenging Night on the Narrow Road

The Riding Lights Theatre Company took nearly one hundred people on the journey of the Narrow Road. The production depicted the life of Jesus from his birth to his resurrection and the choices he made during his lifetime. He could have chosen the ‘broad road’ and chosen a life of ease, or indeed the path chosen by Barrabus who chose the life of a terrorist. Instead he chose the path of obedience to his Father, a path of love and peace in the face of violence, and finally the path of death.

The audience were left with some challenges, not only in their view of Jesus but also the life they will chose to life. Will they walk in the broad way, or like Jesus take the Narrow Way.
