On Sunday, May 4, 2014, at St. John’s Center in Mayfield, St. Tikhon’s Century Association hosted Hospitality ala Russe IV: An Elegant Evening in Moscow. In a true spirit of hospitality, guests mingled with family and friends, filled plates with zakushki, bowls of Baba’s chicken soup, and feasted on a sumptuous meal of Chicken Kiev followed by a generous helping of Moscow cheese cake. The lucky winners of the theme baskets and door prizes were delighted with their new treasures.
The sweetest treat of the evening was the magnificent performance of the Kauriga Balalaika Orchestra of Philadelphia. This remarkable Orchestra entertained guests with a selection of traditional balalaika melodies including folk songs that brought both joy and tears to so many who have not heard this music for years, and who rejoice in the fact that these beautiful melodies are being preserved.
