St. Nicholas Cathedral in Washington, DC is set to host a spectacular evening of music by the St Vladimir’s Seminary Chorale. Tenebrae: Music of Holy Week from East & West is Friday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m.

DC Tenebrae Concert

The concert takes its name from a candlelit Holy Week service from the Western Christian tradition (tenebrae means “darkness” in Latin). The evening promises to be an inspiring look ahead to the solemn Lenten journey, the cross, and the empty tomb.

A reception will follow with wine and light hors d’ouvres. Books and CDs will be available for purchase from SVS Press.

The concert will help raise funds for St. Vladimir’s seminarians. There is no admission fee to attend the event, but advanced tickets are required (see below). Donations made before the concert, by February 5, of over $100 will be listed in the event program.

We offer this evening of contemplative and powerful music to you, for whatever you may need it to be during this season of preparation. Walk with us; breathe with us; be with us.
