The current members of Kitka, the Bay Area’s own globally acclaimed women’s vocal ensemble, create a potent sound when they raise their nine voices in song. More than three dozen women who have contributed to the trailblazing ensemble’s epic journey will combine the power of their voices at Harmony & Dissonance: Kitka’s 40th Anniversary Celebration and Reunion Concert. The multimedia performance will take place on Sunday, March 10, at 7:30 p.m. at First Congregational Church, 2501 Harrison Street in Oakland, CA. Tickets are available at www.kitka.org.
Timed to coincide with International Women’s Day weekend, the celebration will be an uplifting evening of soulful songs, stories, and recollections gathered over Kitka’s decades of exploring the communal singing traditions of Eastern Europe and beyond. The Kitka Reunion Choir will be led by special guest Tzvetanka Varimezova, the acclaimed Bulgarian vocalist and choirmaster who is also longtime collaborator, mentor, and friend of the ensemble.
