The Omega rock band will present the "Omega-Oratorium" in Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Moscow on June 1st as part of the Hungarian Cultural Season in Russia kicks off on May 30; the musical event will be held in the Russian Orthodox Church's main hall said András Baranyi, director of the Balassi Cultural Institute in Moscow.
The musical event will be special one in a sense that the composition will be adopted to church setting with the participation of a symphonic orchestra.
Omega gave its first concert in Moscow in 2013 at 50th anniversary of the formation of the band; then, members of the group received high Russian Orthodox Church awards.
It was uplifting that the Russian Orthodox church honored the group, which inspired them to come back to Moscow with a new program. The Omega-Oratorium was already performed in some neighboring countries as well as in Germany.
The Synod Hall can accommodate about 1000 people; the concert will be a real musical delicacy for Omega fans said Baranyi.
