Relic is a conductorless period chamber orchestra that connects with audiences through intimate, imaginative and dramatic representations of early music, with the goal of reaching communities in all 50 states. Relic’s innovative programming, which uses narrative “chapters” to unite a variety of repertoire into a breathtaking concert experience, has captured the hearts of new and seasoned concertgoers alike.

Their current tour is titled “At the Temple of Juno.” In six musical chapters, Relic honors the goddess Juno and all she represents: love, fury, devotion, youthfulness and vitality. The concert features music by Handel, Scarlatti and Charpentier.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to experience RELIC! The group is dynamic, virtuosic and simply fabulous. The performance is family-friendly. Relic actively seeks community engagement opportunities, offering free children’s concerts, informal performances, and open rehearsals in every region it visits.

2nd Annual Pysanky Party This Sunday

Made in ALX

533 Montgomery St.

Alexandria, Virginia 22314 Map

Event Info

Again this year, The Critical Mass, LLC, the Made in ALX store and local Ukrainian-American artists are throwing a Pysanky Party — and partnering on a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization Razom for Ukraine.

The free event, from 5 – 7 p.m. this Sunday, Feb. 25 at Made in ALX (533 Montgomery St. in Old Town North), is part of the annual tradition.

Admission is free (but please RSVP). Guests will get to see new pysanky, meet the local artists, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks.

What are Pysanky?

Pysanky (pronounced PIH-san-kih; singular form is pysanka) are Ukrainian Easter eggs, elaborately decorated in the batik (wax-resist) method. This art has been passed down through generations of Ukrainians and they are traditionally made during Lent to be given as gifts to friends and family.

More than half of all pysanky sales will benefit Razom for Ukraine at Made in ALX through the end of March. Plus, made in ALX will also donate 10% of all other sales during the Feb. 25 to the organization.
