Peter, you must be attending St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in West Springfield--it's the only ROCOR church in the Springfield, MA, area. I occasionally attend Services there and know your rector, Father Brendan Crowley, and his matushka.
I am a parishioner at St. Peter and St. Paul Russian Orthodox Church (OCA) at 118 Carew St. in Springfield proper. We're having a concert this Friday evening, Nov. 7, at 7:15 pm featuring a group of 10 children of various ethnic groups from Saraktash settlement, Orenburg Region, Russia, to benefit the Holy Trinity House of Mercy in Saraktash. The children's adopted father, a Russian Orthodox priest, father of 53 adopted children in all now, will be with them and will answer questions after the concert. Please let Fr. Brendan know--and I hope to see you there Friday night as well!
