          The Orientale Lumen Foundation will sponsor and present a concert tour named “Sing Joyfully to the Lord:  Sacred Hymns of the Carpathian Mountains” from September 11 through October 2, 2016.  The hierarchs of the Byzantine Catholic Metroplitan Church of Pittsburgh and the Greek Catholic Eparchy of Mukachevo have given their blessing and support for this special project.  This concert tour will be performed by the seminary choir from the Blessed Theodoe Romzha Seminary from Uzhorod, Transcarpathia, Ukraine.

Blessed Theodore Romzha

The seminary choir will visit Byzantine Catholic parishes in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC over a three-week period. 

At each location, the group will present a concert of sacred music according to the singing tradition of the Carpathian Mountains of eastern Slovakia and southwestern Ukraine.  Each concert will include a combination of liturgical selections and hymns in Church Slavonic.  The concerts are free and open to the public, and free-will donations at each concert will be sent to support the Seminary.  Divine Liturgies in Church Slavonic are also scheduled at many parishes along the tour.  Consult the overall schedule to see which parish will be a stop on the tour, and then consult the local parish for details. 

Recordings of Marian Hymns, Christmas Carols, Lent and Paschal Hymns, Choral Arrangements from the Divine Liturgy, as well as cpmplete litrugies of St. John Chrysostom, St. Basil, Presanctified Gifts and Daily Vespers will be available for purchase for further fund raising. 

Additional donations can be sent to:  Seminary Concert Tour, PO Box 192, Fairfax, VA 22038 with checks made payable to "Orientale Lumen Foundation."  The OL Foundation is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization and any donations are tax deductible.  All net proceeds from the tour will be sent directly to support the seminary in Uzhorod.  In some locations, additional events will be scheduled – liturgies, parish dinners, receptions, etc. – with the choir members so that parishioners and seminarians may have an informal exchange of their faith and traditions.
