Portland Monthly Picks Live In Greece

Cover_LiveinGreece1

We aren’t the only ones excited about next weekend’s Live In Greece performances. Portland Monthly has chosen next Sunday’s concert at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral as an “Editor’s Pick!”

June 15-16 Cappella Romana Presents — Live in Greece: From Constantinople to California

Join Cappella Romana on a 1,000-year journey from Constantinople to California. Ancient Byzantine chants mark the point of departure for musical encounters with Crusaders and Venetians. East meets West again at St. Sophia Cathedral in Los Angeles, where Frank Desby founded a tradition, continued by his Californian peers, of Greek- American choral music. The tour comes full circle with the mystical ecstasy of Radiant Cloud, a sonic icon of the Transfiguration by Athenian composer Michael Adamis.

In September 2011 Cappella Romana toured Greece for the first time, performing this program at the international Sacred Music Festival of Patmos (Φεστιβάλ Φρησκευτικής Μουσικής Πάτμου), and on the island of Paros at the 6th-century Church of 100 Doors and in the village church of Áspro Chorió, where the ensemble also recorded a new disc, “Cappella Romana Live in Greece.”

FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND SPECIAL: Fathers of all kinds receive a free CD of the Live In Greece: From Constantinople to California program when you attend a full Cappella Romana concert.
