Musical Performance:
Austin Troubadours (Medieval and Renaissance Music)
Viktoria and Yakov Nizhnik Duet (Kantele (Gusli))
Sergey Vashchenko (Balalaika)

The Russian Speakers Society will present a unique musical program for Austin audiences of all ages, Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at Unity Church of the Hills, 9905 Anderson Mill Road in NW Austin. We will hear unique musical instruments rarely seen in Austin concert venues. The Austin Troubadours will present over thirty authentic replicas of Medieval and Renaissance instruments. Viktoria and Yakov Niznik will play 37-string Kantele (Gusli), an ancient multistring instrument producing the sound similar to harp. Sergey Vashchenko will demonstrate all the possibilities of Russian Balalaika.

The first part of the program will take listeners on a musical journey through the Medieval and Renaissance Mediterranean. The Austin Troubadours will perform oldest known instrumental dances and songs from Spain, Italy and France. The second part of the evening, Slavic Connections, will focus on the traditional music of Serbia, Macedonia and Russia.

The Austin Troubadours, known for their unorthodox approach to music interpretation, will present a historically informed performance with authentic instruments and period costumes. Artistic Director Slobodan Vujisic talked about the inspiration for the concert: We are excited to present the concert with some new materials of the Early Renaissance. We have so little evidence of how the music of that time actually sounded, that every performance of it becomes something of a personal vision quest.

Tickets can be purchased online
https://www.showclix.com/event/the-18th-russian-winter-fest or at the door. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and the Texas Commission on the Arts.

HELP NEEDED

ADVITA FUND USA

Advita Fund USA was founded in October 2007 (tax ID: 26-1300404).

Patients in Russia and the former Soviet Union face unique challenges:

  • lack of national bone marrow donor registry;
  • bureaucratic red tape that families have to struggle with to obtain governments treatment quotas;
  • lack of supporting medications that have to be purchased privately;
  • high cost of imported equipment and medications, and
  • inadequate federal financing of healthcare

As a result, thousands of children remain untreated, receive inadequate care, or run out of money long before the treatment is completed. While close to 80% of children with cancer are cured in the West, only 50% survive in Russian hospitals. We strive to close this gap.
Your donations are used to pay for bone marrow transplants, cancer drugs and supporting medications, and other necessary medical procedures.
The fund is staffed by volunteers only.
Thank you for your kindness!

Advita Fund USA is a volunteer-run organization - it means we pay no salaries to our staff and incur only minimal administrative expenses, so that most of the money we raise goes to patients we support.

You can make the donation at the ADVITA website

http://www.advitausa.org/
