Celebration of Heritage Concert Series: The Arizona Balalaika Orchestra

December 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
Tucson Jewish Community Center
3800 E River Rd.

Founded in Tucson almost 40 years ago by Mia Bulgarin Gay, the concert will feature Roma style vocalists Natalia Neazimbyetov and Guy Velgos, musicians in full costume playing on imported Russian instruments—the triangular balalaikas, the rounded domras (resembling the mandolin), accordions, woodwinds, and the exotic harp-like ‘gusli.’ Besides traditional Russian folk melodies, the concert will also include Moldovan, Jewish and Ukrainian songs.
