Russian music, dance and folk song at Sandwich Central School John Hansen writes:

Next week on Wednesday, September 26, at 8:15 a.m., Sandwich Central School will host Barynya, a Russian music, dance and folk song ensemble. Barynya presents Russian, Cossack, Ukrainian, Jewish, and Gypsy Roma traditional dancing, songs and virtuoso performances on instruments including the balalaika, garmoshka, and balalaika contrabass. Every dance is performed in different sets of costumes inspired by the place where the dance originated. This group has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall, the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, and the United Nations in New York.

Local friends are welcome to join us on Wednesday morning at 8:15 a.m. for this hour-long show. There is no cost, but we do ask that you call the school (284-7712) no later than Tuesday afternoon to request a seat so we know how many to set up.
