At its core, Slavyanka seeks to entertain, inform, excite and educate listeners in the haunting harmonies of the Orthodox Church and Eastern European cultures. This a capella chorus of men who gather every Tuesday evening to sing the sacred and secular music of Russia and Eastern Europe and the Balkans invariably finds "flow"** in the communal experience of voices in harmony. Founded in San Francisco in 1979 by two alumni of the Yale Russian Chorus, the group sings concerts, goes on periodic European tours and has recorded numerous CDs. --- slavyanka.org --- ** Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi --- http://qlrc.cgu.edu/mike.htm
