Charitable Concert Tour of UK Announced by Belarusian folk group ‘The Slavyane’ 

Saint Elisabeth Convent (Minsk, Belarus) Award-winning male vocal group THE SLAVYANE has announced the dates of its UK  charity concert tour of  Russian Orthodox Liturgical Music and traditional folk songs from Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.CDs, icons and souvenirs made in the Convent will be available.

‘The Slavyane’ male vocal ensemble is touring the UK with charitable concerts in support of social ministries of St Elisabeth convent, located in Minsk, Belarus. Their concerts in the UK will feature chants of the Orthodox Divine Liturgy as well as Russian, Belarusian and Ukranian traditional folk songs. The tours starts on Thursday 28th February in Guildford and ends on Sunday 10th March in Chiswick at 2pm and Ealing at 8pm.  Spiritual and social help to the sick and the suffering is an indispensable part of the life at the convent that bears the name ofHoly Martyr Elisabeth (Grand Princess Elisabeth, a granddaughter of British Queen Victoria, who organised the first SS Martha and Mary Convent for the impoverished and the needy in Moscow). The sisters and brothers of the Convent take care of the patients of the National Prychiatric Clinic and the boarding home for mentally and physically challenged children and adults; orphanage #7 for children with special needs (about 200 children); research institutes of pulmonology and psychiatry; the municipal skin and venerology clinic. The convent also operates a farmstead located 19 miles from Minsk. There the sisters try to bring back to social life former drug and alcohol addicts. We plan to built a smaller rehabilitation centre for females and a Sunday school for children soon. Beside a remarkable opportunity to enjoy good music, you will be able to participate in the charitable activities of the Convent and have opportunity to buy some beautiful icons, church goods and souvenirs made with love and prayer at the Convent’s workshops. May the Lord bless you!
