An evening of beautiful vocal harmonies representing ageless cultures from around the globe.
Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts
This popular winter holiday program has become a JCC tradition. Kitka also celebrates the release of their new CD: Evening Star.
Wintersongs showcase seasonal music from a wide variety of Eastern European ethnic and spiritual traditions featuring songs ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols; to lush meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works; to Baltic pagan incantations for the return of the Sun Goddess, to Caucasus Georgian Alilos (hallelujahs); to Yiddish, Sephardic, and Hebrew songs for Chanukah; to Bosnian-Muslim ilahijas (devotional hymns); to rhythmic Balkan Romany (“Gypsy”) tunes for the winter festivals of Vasilica and Kurban Bajram.
Regardless of background or ethnicity songs through the world and throughout the ages have been used to warm up the winter and celebrate the season.
This year we present Kitka at a new family friendly time. Make Wintersongs a new multicultural tradition for your winter season!
“Simply amazing harmonies…truly this is the most wonderful singing I have ever heard.”
