UP CLOSE WITH KITKA WOMEN'S VOCAL ENSEMBLE
”You're in for a treat as the 2018-2019 PJCC Up Close concert series closes with KITKA. Celebrating their 40th season, the women’s vocal ensemble is unlike any other, blending a contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques that have been distilled over centuries. Using only the pure unaccompanied voice, Kitka creates a constantly shifting landscape of sound, pulsing with angular rhythms, where dramatic dynamics leap from delicate stillness to shattering resonance, and seamless harmonies explode into lush, incomprehensible chords.”
One of the pieces performed will be inspired by Laurie Wohl's The Shabbat Project showing in the PJCC Art Gallery through May 21, 2019. "The rich sound these women produce resonates as if energized by the universe itself….” San Francisco Chronicle.
This concert is made possible by the Koret Taube Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
