Russian relations brought closer to home in Roswell

September 20, 2013 by  

Friendships between Americans and Russians are as strong as ever right here in Roswell, and this is certainly clearly marked in upcoming weeks, as the Atlanta Balalaika Society presents a Russian folk festival in the city.

From age-old gypsy songs racing back through the years, to more modern traditional tunes from a modernising country, the ‘From the Volga to the Chattahoochee’ event at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center is sure to be popularly attended.

Work carried out by brochure printers for the event shows it is about more than just song though, with a stunning array of internationally renowned artists taking to the stage.

The concert will see some masters of traditional Russian music put on an attractive show, accompanied by equally talented lead vocalists. All stars of the Barynya Russian dance group, they will no doubt be one of the many highlights of the show.

The Atlanta Balalaika Society will also perform on the night, again with virtuoso performers taking to the stage with the troupe to entertain the masses.

Celebrating 32 years through 2013, the society operates one of the biggest traditional Russian orchestras outside of the large trans-continental country itself.

A popular touring group, the orchestra completes its magical journey by wearing traditional costumes and through the use of traditional instruments such as balalaikas, bayans, and domras, among many others.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 19 at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, getting underway at 7:30 pm.
