On April 27, the Easter concert “Christ is Risen!” was held at the Russian House in Brussels, performed by the Youth bishop’s choir of the Brussels-Belgian eparchy, which consisted of church hymns glorifying the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ not only in Church Slavonic, but also in Greek, Georgian, Arabic, French and many other languages. At the end of the concert, the choir performed several secular, well-known and beloved songs by all of us.
The choir was founded in 2020, with the blessing of the Archbishop Simon of Brussels and Belgium, and is a collection of young people from various parishes of the Brussels-Belgium diocese. The composition of the choir is international, and every year it becomes more and more. It has singers from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Greece, currently residing in the Kingdom of Belgium and the Netherlands.
The choir’s repertoire consists not only of church and sacred music, but also of Soviet songs.
Thank you to everyone who shared this great holiday with us!
