An Evening of Serbian Classical Music

 May 15 2008, Organ Hall, School of Music, ASU, Tempe AZ

 

 

 

Our first performance was as a part of the concert: 'An Evening of Serbian Classical Music’, May 15 2008. The initiative came from several professional musicians of Serbian roots, mostly connected to Arizona State University as faculty, students, or alumni.  Radmila Stojanović-Kiriluk, pianist and ASU faculty member,  was the first to suggest the concert. With other people from the group: Jana Minov, Snezana Krstić, Nenad Savić, Danica Terzić, Jelena Vladiković, Gordana Stojanović and Lazo Mihajlovich the concert was organized. Jana Minov, a doctoral student in conducting at ASU Music School, has taken responsibility to lead the choir. We have made a nice group of signers who really enjoy singing and making music together.

 
 

The choral portion of the program included:

 
Oče Naš  (Lord’s Prayer)  - Josif Marinković (1851-1931),  Hvalite (Praise the Lord, Excerpt from Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom) - Stevan Stojanović Mokranjac (1856-1914), Svjati Bože (Holy God, Excerpt from Orthodox Requiem) - Stevan Hristić (1885-1958), Dunje i jabuke (Quinces and Apples) Serbian Folk Song, arr.
