UWRFO2019

 The Orchestra, now in its 22nd season, is a unique ensemble performing Russian and other East-European folk music on authentic Russian instruments, balalaikas and domras. Founded and directed by Victor Gorodinsky, the orchestra receives support from the Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) at UW-Madison.

GRACE PRESENTS is a free monthly concert series that takes place in the historic Grace Episcopal Church on Madison’s Capitol Square. All concerts are at noon on Saturdays.

We feature a diverse range of music, including everything from classical and folk to jazz and bluegrass. Our performers include nationally-recognized musicians and exceptional young talent from Madison and beyond. At Grace Presents you can hear a critically acclaimed jazz pianist one month and a performance of early music by a talented group of students the next.

All GRACE PRESENTS concerts are free and open to all, but good-will offerings are gladly accepted, and form an important part of the program’s continued presence at the heart of downtown Madison.

Check conversations with Grace Presents artists and select live recordings from our concerts at Soundcloud.com/gracepresents
