Classical Interludes: Dancing Crane
The men's choir "Zekari" follows a long tradition of men's groups in Georgia singing regional polyphonic folk songs and religious songs. Zekari, from the country of Georgia, are now part of Brooklyn's immigrant community and perform as part of the Dancing Crane Georgian Cultural Center.
These songs are ancient, sophisticated examples of elaborate polyphony, haunting traditional melodies, dance songs, love songs, patriotic songs, songs from the Georgian Orthodox liturgy and the repertoire of romances and city songs that have developed over the past 200 years.
This intimate concert presents the kind of traditional singing shared socially among friends and family as well as in performance settings. Children under 6 will not be admitted.
Classical Interludes is made possible in part by a generous gift from James J. O'Toole and is supported in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and many generous individual donors.
