Kitka | December 7 and 8, 2014

The sounds of traditional Eastern European songs graced the Music Room on December 7 and 8 when the Friends of Music hosted its final concerts of 2014. The San Francisco–based women’s vocal ensemble Kitka set the tone for an attractive and diverse celebration of winter, rooted in some of the coldest countries of the Old World. The exotic program, Wintersongs, displayed a distinctive palette of sonorities and rhythms, sung with spirit and precision in languages such as Bulgarian, Romanian, Georgian, Russian, Hungarian, and Yiddish.
