The organ and the flute – a concert in a church

If you’ve been craving some gothic themes in your life lately, this event was made for you – held in a Gothic Revival cathedral and focusing on the classic pieces for the organ and the flute. Enjoy this unusual combination of instruments and who knows, you might discover some new undertones that you haven’t heard before in the pattern of sounds that they create.

This weekend just happens to be the last one of this long and cold winter that we’ve had! To welcome the spring, step into St. Petersburg’s Botanical Garden and marvel at the beautiful flowers already abloom there. Lilacs, azaleas, subtropical plants, and much more – these sights will surely excite any artist or avid gardener and are a nice diversion from February’s steel-grey sky.
