Music in the Chapel: The Nightingale Trio

Sunday, July 8, 2018 | 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended this event!

 

Lakewood’s “Music in the Chapel” concerts showcase a variety of artists in one of our city’s most beloved architectural treasures — the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.

 

On Sunday, July 8, enjoy the rich women’s vocal traditions of Eastern Europe and the Balkans from The Nightingale Trio. An emerging force on the global folk music scene, Nightingale Trio captures the incomparable richness, dizzying rhythms, and raw, earthy power of this women's folk tradition.

 

The concert begins at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2 p.m. Self-guided tour brochures of Lakewood’s Memorial Chapel will be available.

 

About the Chapel

Dedicated in 1910, the Lakewood Memorial Chapel was modeled after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul by prominent Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones. Its 10-million piece mosaic interior, created by New York designer Charles Lamb, features a 40-foot high dome ringed with stained glass windows and 12 mosaic angels. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Chapel is one of the finest examples of Byzantine mosaic architecture in the country.
