Christmas concert of Charles University Choir – J. Pavlica – Missa brevis

14. 12. 2017 - 7:30 PM

Simon and Juda Church, Dusni, Prague 1

The imaginary peak of the autumn part of the 70th season of the Charles University Choir in Prague will inherently lie in the traditional Christmas concert in the Simon and Juda Church. In the first half of the evening a selection of choir pieces from Orthodox authors of Russian origin will be heard, while the second half will be dedicated to Moravian musician and composer Jiří Pavlica and his composition Missa brevis.

Come and join us with a calm atmosphere in the upcoming Advent time.

You are cordially invited!
