Ivan Moody Conducts Balkan Epiphany

PORTLAND, Oregon; SEATTLE, Washington. Cappella Romana received double standing ovations with two encores on January 13 and 14 in both Portland and Seattle under the direction of Ivan Moody, internationally renowned composer, conductor, and specialist in music of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

The public responded in particular to three works by contemporary Serbian composer Rajko Maksimovic, whose three works on the program attested passionately to the recent tragic history in the Balkans.
