On Sunday, May 26, 2013, in a true spirit of hospitality, guests mingled with family and friends, filled plates with zakushki, and feasted on traditional delicacies that left no room for dessert. For those of us who always have room for dessert, our friends from St. John’s provided an awesome selection of sweets.
Perhaps the sweetest treat of the evening came in the form of the Podoben Choral Ensemble. This remarkable chorus entertained guests with a selection of folk songs that brought both joy and tears to so many who have not heard this music for years, and who rejoice in the fact that these beautiful melodies are being preserved.
The St. John’s Children’s Dance Ensemble, in full costume, dazzled guests with an amazing performance of ethnic dances that left everyone smiling, clapping, and standing on their feet. Many Years to the children of our church!
