Date: 09/04/13 Message: Sacred and folk songs from Russia. LYRA choral group. South US tour 2014
In April - May 2014, a Russian vocal group "LYRA" is going to the South of the US with a concert tour. LYRA is a group of 5 professional singers (2 ladies and 3 men) educated at St. Petersburg conservatory. Our concert program consists of Russian sacred hymns and folk songs.
Now we are trying to get in touch with parishes, musicians, music organizations and all people in your country who are interested in a cappella music. If you had such interest and you could assist us in arranging a recital we would appreciate your help very much. As mentioned above, we are working on the US concert tour which should take place in late April - May 2014. We have got already quite a few invitations from different churches. Still we would be so much thankful for any contacts one could give us and that might be interested in our performances in the Spring 2014 or whenever else. Maybe you or somebody of your colleagues/friends/acquaintances have any contacts that for some reason might be helpful to us.
The main aim of our activity is to make Russian Church music well known in other countries by concerts and singing in ecumenical worships, and also to bring traditions of Russian folk music to people who are interested in Russia, its history and its culture. Our group regularly goes with concert tours to the US and European countries (Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria,
If you would like to meet richness of Russian musical heritage and invite our group to your church please contact us at lyra.vocal.group(at)gmail.com . This will be a great and unique experience for your congregation and community.

In 2001 we were awarded the Montreux (Switzerland) international choral festival diploma. In 2005 our group was also a winner of Coleraine International Choral Festival (Northern Ireland).
Every year, since 2001, we tour around the US. Over 60000 Americans have listened to us and could prove the quality of our performance. We have made friends with many people who, we are sure, will be glad to say a word for us. For references you can contact the following persons:
