An Evening of Organ and Vocals at St. Michael's Cathedral

St. Michael’s Cathedral is regularly featured in our guides – and for a reason: where else would you go to listen to an organ concert if not a Gothic Revival cathedral? This time, apart from this grand instrument, you will also get to hear vocals by an internationally acclaimed performer and a selection of timeless classics as well as pieces from famous films. An added bonus to the already highly exciting event – I bet the inside of a spacey cathedral is bound to be pleasantly colder, shading you from the merciless sun of late.

Blessed by the Music concert

Another concert – another church, this time it’s the mysterious Petrikirche right in the middle of Nevsky Prospect. On June 26, the visitors are promised to witness a concert featuring young performers who took part in the international contest Nota Bene! The program includes an abundance of genres and historical epochs and possibly the future internationally famous performers on their way to conquer the world. Moreover, Petrikirche itself is always worth a visit and will doubtless contribute to the experience.

Lev Yudin: My Own Voice

  • May 13 - June 28
  • St. Michael’s Castle, The Russian Museum
  • 500 rubles (250 for students – reduced price tickets only purchasable at the entrance)

A student of Kazimir Malevich, Lev Yudin is mostly known for this famous connection. However, during his creative work in the first third of the 20th century, he also managed to develop his own painting style and contribute to the bustling cultural life of the country. He explored avant-garde in all its aspects, from cubism, suprematism, and surrealism to collaborations with contemporary avant-garde and absurdist poets. And on top of that, Lev Yudin also illustrated children’s books and magazines – these illustrations have also made it to the current exhibition. Enjoy this unique sneak peek into Russian avant-garde as you walk down the familiar halls of the Russian Museum.
