With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, and on behalf of the members of the Archdiocesan Byzantine Choir, we wish to cordially invite you to attend a concert entitled, “He is Risen!” The concert will be performed by the Archdiocesan Byzantine Choir with a special performance by the Archdiocesan Youth Choir and will take place on May 19, 2013 at Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity located at 319 East 74th Street at 6:00PM.

The concert program will feature a selection of ecclesiastical hymns from the Paschal season which will be performed by the Archdiocesan Byzantine Choir in Greek. The Archdiocesan Youth Choir has also been invited as a special guest to perform a number of traditional American and Greek songs. Both choirs will join their voices, as they did at Carnegie Hall in December 2012.

It should be noted that all the evening’s proceeds will go to help the Archdiocesan Byzantine Choir continue to promote and share the beauty of Byzantine Music here and abroad. It is their firm hope that they will be blessed to travel to Constantinople and perform in honor of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I on the occasion of the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle in November of 2013.

We looking forward to seeing you at this most special concert!
