Vocal Ensemble Cappella Romana presents THE BYZANTINE CHORAL INHERITANCE with rarely heard music from the historic traditions of Byzantium and new works inspired by them.
Music Director Dr. Alexander Lingas will lead the first half of the program. The concert will begin with works in Greek from medieval Constantinople, followed by liturgical works by twentieth-century Greek American composers such as Tikey Zes, Theodore Bogdanos, and Frank Desby.
The second half, led by Associate Music Director John Michael Boyer, will feature the East Coast premiere of Heaven and Earth: A Song of Creation, a setting of Psalm 103. Commissioned by the Saint John of Damascus Society to celebrate the discovery of the Higgs boson, six composers: Tikey Zes, +Richard Toensing, GRAMMY-nominee Kurt Sander, Alexander Khalil, John Michael Boyer, and Matthew Arndt, each set a portion of the Psalm, creating a seamless tapestry.
Every year we have the distinct pleasure of celebrating the day that the eternal word put on flesh, and invaded our fallen world with the light of salvation (John 1:14) during this holiday season. Join us as we celebrate, and rejoice in the Lord together through song, dance, poetry, rap, and theater. Youth and young adult ministries from different churches around greater Boston will gather together, worship together, and minister to one another through a unique blend of performance arts.
We have the one and only show stopping host, Host Valcin! And we also have two of Boston’s biggest Christian Hip Hop artists, Caleb McCoy and Disciple both blessing the stage.
Come for the show and stay for the “After Glow”! Enjoy some light refreshments, music, and fellowship with your family in Christ from different churches and denominations following the show.
Best of all, it’s FREE!!
