Music has the power to trigger in each of us, complex emotions: joy, fear, agitation, tranquility. It can also evoke memories in a way few experiences can. Music can be a like a time machine, transporting us decades, instantly, upon hearing the popular music of our youth.
This spring, return with us to a time before texting and e-mail, to a time of simpler pleasures: friends and family and music as warm and comforting as a visit home. Los Angele's own Balalaika Orchestra presents its 23rd annual concert featuring melodies guaranteed to set you on a journey through your past. Your journey will be conducted with the help of some remarkable guest soloists including soprano, Anna Belaya, baritone Vladimir Chernov, and Dr. Mark Goldenberg singing Yiddish favorites. They will be joined onstage by high-flying dancers and instrumental masters of the domra and balalaika. With our world famous folk instrument orchestra providing a shimmering musical landscape behind these artists, during the concert you may hear another sound, that of your heartstrings.
