A concert celebrating the exhibition
Vaults of Heaven: Visions of Byzantium
The splendor of Byzantine sacred art, preserved in ancient churches in both Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire, and the Cappadocia region of Turkey, is the subject of Vaults of Heaven: Visions of Byzantium, an exhibition of photographs on view at the Fairfield University Art Museum through September 16, 2016.
In collaboration with the Axion Estin Foundation, the museum presents “Voices of Byzantium,” a concert of Byzantine sacred music. During the concert images from the exhibition will be projected behind an ensemble of chanters who will perform an exquisite selection of response repertory linked to the saints and themes captured in these monumental works by acclaimed Turkish photographer Ahmet Ertug. Renowned chanters Eleftherios Eleftheriadis and Giorgos Theodoridis will serve as soloists.
