It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

On this program, celebrate the holiday season with a program of seasonal music, New Sounds style. Hear from the likes of Kitka, with repertoire ranging from Bulgaria to Belarus, from Georgia to Greece, from their "Wintersongs" CD. The women’s vocal ensemble uses the ‘open voice’ technique to achieve an exotic, elegant and eerie sound. There are lots of other tasteful non-traditional holiday selections, hopefully with a few surprises.
