Join BRCP on November 22, 2014 for an evening of performances, dancing, and a gala dinner honoring Gordon B. Lankton, philanthropist, collector and founder of the Museum of Russian Icons.
You will enjoy a feast for all the senses and help support the BRCP's mission of co-operation and exchange in the arts between the US and post-Soviet countries!
