On Sunday, August 3, 2008 right after Divine Liturgy, St. Basil of Ostrog, SOC Lake Forest/Mettawa cordially invites you to a concert of Serbian spiritual and folk songs featuring the Brkić triplets, Vera, Nada and Slobodan.
The Brkić family is from the village of Glušci, near Šabac, Serbia. Dragiša and Zorica Brkić have two daughters Vera and Nada, and two sons Slobodan and Miodrag.
Two of the triplets, Nada and Slobodan, have been visually challenged since their birth.
The children have been brought to Boston for a series of surgical procedures to improve their vision.
Medical advances in the U.S. have given them hope of being able to see one day: after one surgical procedure they can now very faintly recognize objects in front of them.
Through their singing they are raising funds needed to help them pay for their medical bills and additional surgeries. These young teenagers, though physically blind, have rich spiritual vision. God has given them beautiful voices that can bring both joy and tears to their audience.
