Music from the palace of the Tsars, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Romanov dynasty.

In 1613, Mikhail Romanov accepted the crown as tsar of all Russia, beginning a dynastic succession that lasted until the revolution of 1917.  Across modern Russia, and especially in St Petersburg, concerts and celebrations are being presented to commemorate this anniversary.

Silver Swan lends its voices to this musical array, performing in a concert of music from the libraries of the Imperial family in St Petersburg.  Join us for a presentation of music of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, and many other famous and lesser-known composers with a connection to the life and times of the Romanov family:

Friday evening, May 17, 2013, at 7:30 pm at Macalester Plymouth Church, 1658 Lincoln Avenue, St. Paul. Tickets are $20 ($15 student/senior) and are available at the door.
