Welcome to the Classical MPR landing page of the #RACHparty: hosted by #TheChoralStream , the Kansas City Chorale, and the Phoenix Chorale. Our stream will deliver the world premiere broadcast their “Rachmaninoff: All-night Vigil” CD at 8pm CDT. After the broadcast, please join us for an exclusive live video interview/hangout with both choirs and artistic director, Charles Bruffy.
Before the #RACHparty begins that evening, American Public Media’s Performance Today will broadcast a sneak preview of highlights from the new release to a national audience. During the broadcast, Performance Today host Fred Child will speak with artistic director Charles Bruffy and Dr. Vladimir Morosan, president of Musica Russica and a leading expert on Russian choral music. Child and Morosan will discuss the audience reaction to the premiere of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers and why the piece is still relevant today.
