Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble celebrates the coming of winter and the festive season with a program of music that showcases how different people and cultures celebrate the holidays. Kitka has discovered a treasure trove of seasonal music from a wide variety of Eastern European ethnic and spiritual traditions. Wintersongs
showcases songs ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols to meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works, and Baltic pagan incantations to Caucasus Georgian Alilos (hallelujahs). There will also be a selection of Yiddish, Sephardic and Hebrew songs for Hanukkah. Traditional pieces will be woven together with new folk song arrangements and original compositions by Kitka members and contemporary American and Eastern European composers.
