The June 11 Kupala Concert is a celebration of friendship, remembering an earlier time of cooperation and peaceful co-existence between Eastern Europeans of different ethnicities, languages, and backgrounds.  In addition to the master composers of these countries, the program includes several works acknowledging the solstice: Jaroslaw Golembiowski’s “Five O’clock…Comes the Dawn,” “Rhythmic Variations on Two Ancient Hymns” by Howard Hanson, and Ilya Levinson’s “Kupala Folk Suite,” based on traditional melodies.  The choir performance, led by Music Director Eva Mrgen, will include “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.”
