NJ, January 4, 2012–“Evensong: A Service of Prayer and Song” led
by Psalom, a Russian a cappella ensemble under the direction of Konstantin
Zhigulin, will perform at Princeton Theological Seminary on Tuesday, January 31
at 7:30 p.m. in Miller Chapel.
This musical ensemble grew out of Zhigulin’s
efforts to share his spiritual music with Christian churches in Russia. His compositions
are based on themes from the Bible, and are written in modern Russian instead
of traditional Slavonic. “This allows listeners to understand the word
inspired by God, and to feel the harmony of the music,” says Zhigulin.
The event is free and open to the public,
and tickets are not required to attend the concert. For more information,
contact the Chapel Office at 609.497.7890 or visit www.ptsem.edu.
Princeton Theological Seminary was founded
in 1812, the first seminary established by the General Assembly of the
Presbyterian Church. It is the largest Presbyterian Seminary in the country,
with more than 500 students in six graduate degree programs.
