Æ (pronounced ash) in Concert, Thursday, June 4 at 7:30 PM

On Thursday, June 3 at 7:30 PM the Havurah will host Æ (pronounced ash) in concert.
Aurelia Shrenker and Eva Salina Primack have been performing together as Æ ("ash") since 2007. Based in Brooklyn, NY, they perform internationally and have just released their debut CD, the self-titled Æ. These two young women bring together their deep understanding of different vocal traditions to create something new and daring with
each song. They have chosen the name Æ because it represents something of a dual nature--not singular, not plural, but exactly two. Accordion and Georgian panduri often add a further dimension to the naked and honest beauty of two unaccompanied voices, creating a rich tapestry with varied texture and ambiance in their live performance. Their
repertoire includes songs from Appalachian, Balkan, Caucasus Georgian, and Corsican traditions. In addition to their album, Æ is featured in the soundtrack of "The Great Soviet Eclipse", the newest film produced under the auspices of the Museum of Jurassic Technology (www.mjt.org). Æ's work is rooted in folk culture and never falls short of being visceral and provocative--in their music, youthful exuberance and reverence for ancient tradition seamlessly coincide.

"On hearing Æ, my life changed for good; a hollowness which I was scarcely aware of has been filled - nourished in the extreme by these extraordinary people and the heartbreakingly beautiful intertwining of their voices."-David Wilson, Museum of Jurassic Technology

On Friday, June 4 from 1-3:00 the duo will offer a workshop at the Havurah.  The workshop on June 4th at the Havurah is a very special opportunity to study with Aurelia Shrenker and Eva Salina Primack, two vibrant, deeply knowledgeable singers specializing in Balkan, Caucasus Georgian, American, and Corsican music. In this two-hour workshop, Aurelia and Eva will teach a minimum of two songs from the aforementioned traditions (generally drawing on the Balkan and Georgian repertoire), focusing on specific and unique elements of pronunciation and ornamentation as well as genre-specific vocal production, vocal technique and exercises, intonation and emotional expression.

Aurelia and Eva's joint teaching style is supportive yet exacting, playful and mindful, with a balance of traditional methodology and individual interpretation. Their workshops offer a glimpse into their creative process and musical philosophy, and create space for their students to develop technique while accessing their own creativity and joy through simple yet profound folk harmonies. The workshop is open to singers of all levels, prior experience and ability to read music are not required.
