KITKA Wintersong

When: Fri., Dec. 20, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $30 general, $25 Playhouse members
Wintersong sung by the women’s vocal ensemble KITKA. KITKA’s winter holiday program showcases seasonal music from a wide variety of Eastern European ethnic and spiritual traditions. These singers blend a contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques from Eastern Europe that have been distilled over centuries. Using only their unaccompanied voices, they create a constantly shifting landscape of sound. KITKA's material ranges from ancient village duets to complex choral works, from early music to contemporary theater. The many languages in which they sing are largely unfamiliar to American ears — Albanian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Serbo-Croatian, Georgian, Hungarian, Ladino, Latvian, Macedonian, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Yiddish, with the occasional Latin, medieval Gallician, or ancient Greek. KITKA: joyful voices uniquely blended in exquisite dissonance and harmony. After KITKA’s Wintersong, Chubritza, folk dancers, and members of the Balkan Music Meetup will open the floor for dancing, singing, snacks, and pre-solstice activities.
