On 8 March, the Right Reverend Dr Robert Innes, Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, accompanied by Rev Malcolm Rogers, the rector of the St. Andrew's Anglican Church of Moscow, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s representative to His Holiness Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, visited the Concert Hall at 56, Angliyskaya Embankment.
The honoured guests were met by the Artistic Director of the Music Hall Theatre Fabio Mastrangelo. The maestro Mastrangelo told them about the building’s history, and paid special attention to the only English pipe organ by Brindley and Forster that remains in St. Petersburg.
It is worth reminding that the operational management of the building of the former Anglican Church at 56, Angliyskaya Embankment, was transferred to the Music Hall Theatre in 2016. After its reconstruction, a new cultural space will be set up here, namely the Concert Hall of Classical Music.
‘I am happy to be today in the space of the former Anglican Church on Angliyskaya Embankment; I am astonished by its beauty,’ the Right Reverend Dr Robert Innes, Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, noted. ‘I am very grateful to the Music Hall Theatre for taking good care of this building. It is crucial to save this building from decay, and to preserve its uniqueness.’
‘We do all we can to revive the building on Angliyskaya Embankment, and to give it a new life,’ the Music Hall Theatre’s Artistic Director Fabio Mastrangelo explained. ‘It will host the Concert Hall of Classical Music, where The St. Petersburg Northern Sinfonia Orchestra and Choir of the Music Hall Theatre led by the Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation Valentina Kopylova-Panchenko as well as other musical groups of St. Petersburg and entire Russia will perform‘.
