Holidays South of the Danube!
Local choirs Dunava and Dave & the Dalmatians present a concert of seasonal songs from southern and eastern Europe. The program will feature lush harmonies and strident dissonance, dance tunes and mournful ballads. Some songs are hundreds of years old and have been passed on through oral tradition, while others are recent compositions in the unique style of specific regions. The lyrics celebrate home, family, and love, and also lament hardship and loss. The expressive music speaks for itself and communicates with listeners all over the world across language boundaries.
