Kolyada – Winter Songs From the Black Sea at Cedar Cultural Center December 15th


The Cedar Cultural Center invites you to join a group of local Eastern European folk musicians as they bring a piece of winter in from the outdoors and onto the stage. Kolyada brings traditional songs from the countries that surround the Black Sea. 

“The all-ages show features traditional a cappella and accompanied songs, including ancient songs learned by Mila Vocal Ensemble on a recent trip to the Republic of Georgia, modern arrangements of Romanian Colinde (carols) written by Orkestar Bez Ime violinist, Colleen Bertsch, and original compositions for the toaca, a semantron used by Orthodox priests to call parishioners to church, written and performed by percussionist, Peter O’Gorman. Orkestar Bez Ime and Nomadi, Balkan bands featuring native Bulgarian musicians and local artists, round out the performance.” – Cedar Cultural Center.
