‘Taste of Russia’ Dinner Is Fundraiser for Singers

Arts / Oct. 8, 2015 9:42am EDT

The Randolph Singers will host a Russian dinner on Saturday, Oct. 17. The Russian theme was inspired by this year’s holiday concert on December 6 of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s celebrated Sacred Vespers on the 100th anniversary of its composition.

The dinner, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Esther Mesh Room at Chandler Cultural Center, will feature both Russian food and Russian entertainment.

The menu for the dinner includes a selection of Russian tastes, from vodka, eggplant caviar, smoked salmon and other zakuski, to Russian black bread, a choice of chicken Kiev or lentil mushroom pie, to a dessert of baked apple sharlotka cake with sour cream.

Entertainment will feature music, a cash bar, Russian storytelling and trivia by Yuliya Ballou, and a Russian iconography presentation by Dmitri Andreyev.

The Randolph Singers was founded in 1968 and has already started planning for its 50th anniversary. This fundraising dinner will help pay for this year’s Rachmaninoff concert, which is free to the public, as well as to support the Golden Jubilee concert in 2018.
