Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble-Wintersongs: San Francisco, CA @ Old First Presbyterian Church | San Francisco | California | United States
KITKA is a women’s vocal ensemble unlike any other. These sophisticated singers blend a contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques from Eastern Europe that have been distilled over centuries. Using only the pure unaccompanied voice, they create a constantly shifting landscape of sound, pulsing with angular rhythms, where dramatic dynamics leap from delicate stillness to shattering resonance, and seamless unisons explode into lush incomprehensible chords. Wintersongs features material ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols to lush, meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works…. from pre-Christian incantations for the longest night of the year to Medieval Sephardic Chanukah songs to original new pieces inspired by the beauty and mystery of wintertime.

29th Camden Conference: “The New Africa”: Camden, ME @ Camden Opera House | Camden | Maine | United States
Africa – Photo Jacques Bonneville Africa is home to the world’s poorest nations, but also has a dozen economies that maintained 7% growth rates over the last decade. Africa is the last major frontier for resource development, while simultaneously struggling with some of the world’s oldest, most corrupt and filthiest oil and mining ventures. While Africa suffers from ethnic and religious violence and poverty, it is blessed with rich and creative cultures and vibrant civil societies. These are only a few of the contradictions and conundrums that will frame the 2016 Camden Conference on the theme of Africa, a massive and often mysterious continent. For more information:
