Konevets Quartet Returns to El Sobrante UMC for Feb. 13 Concert

January 17, 2019

El Sobrante United Methodist Church invites you to an evening of wonderful Russian music beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13, when the Konevets Quartet presents its annual program at the church.
 
Tickets are $15 at the door.

The Konevets Quartet is an all-male a cappella vocal quartet from St. Petersburg, Russia. Their program includes a mixture of Russian sacred, medieval, folk, and regimental music in the rich tradition of Russian choral music and the male chamber choir.
 
Part of the quartet’s revenue aids the continuous restoration of the Monastery of the Holy Nativity of the Mother of God, located 160 kilometers northeast of St. Petersburg, on Lake Ladoga. The monastery suffered catastrophic damage during the Soviet era.
 
El Sobrante UMC has hosted an annual concert by the Konevets Quartet for several years. Church Music Director Eileen Johnson says, “We continue to be blessed and enriched by sharing with our Russian friends.”
