The Monastic Сhoir of St Elisabeth Convent (Minsk, Belarus) will be touring Great Britain between May 25th and June 2nd with a series of charitable concerts.
The tour begins in London. The Choir, consisting of the Сonvent sisters, will be performing there on May 25-28th. It will then continue presenting its concert programme in other cities: Southampton, Poole, Shaftesbury, Newport and Port Talbot.
The Convent has organised such events in Britain before. In 2017 the Sisters performed in London within the scope of the “Heart 2 Heart” Festival. In July, 2018 they visited the town of East Cowes on the Isle of Wight and took part in festivities, dedicated to the Romanov Family. In autumn last year the Сhoir gave several concerts in London, Colchester, Peterborough and Oxford.
The concerts will consist of two parts: worship chants and spiritual songs. The Sisters’ renewed repertoire this year will undoubtedly satisfy even most demanding audiences. Along with well-known favourites the choir will be presenting several new pieces, selected for the tour.
The concerts will be succeeded by small fairs, displaying items made in the Convent workshops. All proceeds from the concerts and the fairs will go to support far-reaching social work that the sisters of St Elisabeth Convent do in hospitals, boarding homes, clinics and orphanages. The Convent also operates two rehabilitation centres for the homeless, ex-prisoners and those suffering from alcohol and drug addictions. The Sisters’ work is aimed at bringing these people back to the fullness of life.
