Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil
Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 7:30pm
Albert Pinsonneault, conductor; Corey Everly, graduate assistant conductor
Rachmaninoff composed his All-Night Vigil in 1915. By 1919 Russia’s new Bolshevik government had begun a systematic persecution of the Russian Orthodox Church, and the work was not performed again in Russia for nearly 70 years. The University Chorale presents this Russian romantic masterpiece, a time capsule from czarist Russia of the World War I era.Free Event
