On Saturday, December 8th at 11AM, Tandy Beal and Company presents the third concert in the ArtSmart Family First Saturday Concert Series, Community Sing with KITKA! Kitka, an American women’s vocal ensemble based in Oakland, invites you and your pal, parent, child or grandchild to explore the velvet textures and angular cadences of Eastern European vocal traditions together in a celebratory circle of song.
Experience the magic of raising your voice with Kitka singers to create lush seasonal harmonies as they were originally intended: to be sung by many voices in community! Dedicated to developing new audiences for music rooted in Balkan, Slavic, and Caucasian women’s vocal traditions, Kitka strives to expand the boundaries of folk song as a living and evolving expressive art form. On December 8th, they will do it with YOU singing with (or listening to) them!
“A refreshing spin on seasonal choral music… thoroughly marvelous!” – NPR
