FolkWorks is pleased to announce a new concert series at the Santa Monica History Museum. The opening concert on Saturday, October 6, will feature Nevenka, a popular Los Angeles-based women's chorus that brings to life vocal folk/roots traditions from around the world. Their songs range from Bulgaria, Georgia, Russia, Bosnia to Rom and Sephardic songs - as well as recently added American and Irish music. Their spellbinding harmonies are at the core of their eclectic repertoire.
Whether a simple American song or the complex harmonies of Bulgaria the voices of Nevenka's women are sure to move you. While mostly singing a cappella, they are occasionally accompanied by percussion, mandolin, guitar, citern or panduri.
The Santa Monica History Museum is the perfect venue for this intimate, acoustic concert. The museum is a nonprofit community cultural center, dedicated to preserving and sharing regional history. It will be open to concertgoers at 6:30pm for a tour and refreshments prior to the concert.
FolkWorks is a nonprofit dedicated to preserving and promoting the folk/traditional arts. They have published an e-zine and presented concerts since 2001.The next concert at the Museum will be a Holiday event on December 15.
