On Sunday evening, May 27th, the St. Tikhon’s Monastery Chamber Choir performed the famous Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil to a sell-out crowd at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Cathedral in Wilkes-Barre!  The choir was directed by Benedict Sheehan, Director of Music at St. Tikhon’s.  Initial photos were taken as they rehearsed at the seminary. 

St. Tikhon’s Monastery Chamber Choir is made up of some of the finest singers in the New York area and around North America, and its annual Memorial Day weekend concert is fast coming to be recognized as a highlight of the artistic season in the region.  Many of the choir members participated in liturgical services over the course of the pilgrimage weekend.
