April 19TH Russian Easter Celebration-Balalaika Music Performance at the Russian Cultural Centre
Easter, or Paskha, is one of the most important holidays of the Russian Orthodox Church. Easter celebration starts with church service which lasts from Saturday night until several hours past midnight. People bring special Easter food to church to be blesses with holy water and be consumed at the traditional Easter breakfast. After the Easter service, Russians traditionally greet each other with three kisses on the cheek and exchange the following words: Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! People often exchange Easter eggs after the greeting. Traditional Eater meal consists of Kulich (sweet Ester bread that is baked in tall, cylindrical tins and decorated with white icing, colorful flowers, and XB - traditional Easter greeting of "Christ is Risen"), Paskha (sweet cottage-cheese dish molded in the form of a pyramid- a symbol of the Church, also said to represent the Tomb of Christ) and dyed eggs. A typical color for egg dying would be red. When artificial food colorings were unavailable people used onion peel to dye the eggs.
In Russia, the balalaika is a symbol of peace and prosperity, which is why musicians from the very heart of Russia, Maxim Fisyn, Vladimir Politov, and Miroslav Ilnytsky formed the group “BALALAIKA” in 1996.
The creative palette of this group is diverse, combining Russian folk music with original work of modern classic composers as well as popular and even country music, thus showing the unlimited possibilities of balalaika. Originality of interpretation, stylistic precision, emotionality and invention, humor and artistic taste—are all combined to create this unique image of the group.

Balalaika is an ancient Russian musical instrument. Like many other popular original instruments balalaika has been highly esteemed in Russia since the old days. In ancient times there was not a holiday without it. Constantly growing popularity of this instrument stimulated the appearance of many artists playing the balalaika. In late 1880-s the famous performer, enthusiast and propagandist Andreev together with Nalimov reconstructed the balalaika giving it a new concert look and shape. Today balalaika is a leading solo and orchestra instrument.
Tickets are available at $35 dollars for limited time offer.
