On Friday, December 16, 2022, the Archdiocese of the Syriac Orthodox Church for the Eastern United States hosted the Pan-Orthodox Christmas Concert at St. Mark’s Cathedral. There were various choirs representing the Oriental Orthodox Churches gathered in celebration of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak welcomed all the Prelates attending the concert (His Grace Bishop David, and His Eminence Mor Titus Yeldho) and all the faithful. During the course of the evening, choirs representing the Syriac Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, Malankara (India), Ethiopian Orthodox, chanted Nativity hymns.
Our Archdiocesan Choir conducted by Very Rev. Fr. Joseph Chamoun prepared a beautiful performance from our traditional Syriac Christmas Hymns.
