Almighty God,

you have broken the tyranny of sin

and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father:

give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service,

that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Friday 26 July in St Modoc’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Doune at 7.30pm.

Igor and Oleksiy, top class professional musicians from Ukraine (Kyiv Classic Accordionist Duo) , are back performing and touring the UK this summer in aid of the Hippokrat Society in Northern Ukraine  – providing support and therapy for young adults damaged by Chernobyl fall-out. They play button accordions which together create a sound like a small orchestra.

  • The programme will feature great classical pieces in the first half – Mozart: Eine kleine Nachtmusik,  Grieg:  Peer Gynt suite,  Vivaldi:  Summer from the Four Seasons
  • And music from Eastern Europe including Ukraine of course – and  perhaps a tango or two

    There may also be a couple of operatic arias – accordion and bass voice. Refreshments are served at the interval, included in the ticket price.   Tickets are available from Philip Gaskell or 087980749972 and on the door.


Tickets are £10 for adults, £7 for concessions and children
