More Info

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral
3131 NE Glisan Street

June 16, 2013, 4 p.m.


Cappella Romana presents "From Constantinople to California," directed by Byzantine musicologist, Dr. Alexander Lingas.  In September 2011, Cappella Romana toured Greece, performing this program at the international Festival of Sacred Music of Patmos, on the island of Paros at the 6th-century Church of 100 Doors and in the village church of Áspro Chorió, where the ensemble recorded the disc, "Live in Greece."

The program represents a 1,000-year journey from Constantinople to California, featuring  ancient Byzantine chants, liturgical music of Greek Orthodoxy in America, choral works by Californian Greek Americans-- Frank Desby and his peers, and mystical sounds of  Athenian composer, Michael Adamis.

Fathers of all kinds receive a free CD of the program for Fathers' Day weekend.

Pre-concert talk one hour prior to the concert in the HACCM museum at 3 pm.

Greek dinner follows the concert at Mad Greek Deli (no-host), 1740 E. Burnside St.
