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.
