Sounds of Spring: Tuesdays in Point Reyes

Six-week series of traditional European vocal music led by Kristine Barrett, Tuesdays

​​Spring is a time of renewal and growth.

From Irish Bealtaine songs and Swedish Sea spells to Georgian hymns, explore the sounds of spring through the lens of traditional music from Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Ireland.

Explore the folklore, history and ethnographic context of each song while simultaneously honing ensemble skills: blending, vocal placement and quality, pitch, pronunciation and various vocal techniques unique to each tradition.
