Spirit of Orthodoxy Concert
On Sunday May 3, 2009, Russian Gift of Life presented a special performance by The Spirit of Orthodoxy Choir directed by Aleksei V. Shipovalnikov. The Spirit of Orthodoxy Choir was formed in 1997 and draws its members from choir directors and singers from Orthodox jurisdictions and parishes in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The Choir's music witnesses to the range of the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church and is representative of the major stylistic periods of Orthodox Church music.
The program for the benefit concert at the Sea Cliff Methodist Church was entitled "Music of Great Lent and Pascha." All monies raised through this event directly benefit life-saving heart surgery for underprivileged Russian children.
