Cantigas Choir Spring 2013 Hoboken

Hoboken’s Cantigas Women’s Choir presents its eleventh annual spring concert titled WOMEN WHO SING, WOMEN WHO DANCE on Saturday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church (707 Washington Street at 7th Street) in Hoboken, N.J. The suggested donation for the concert is $15 ($5 for seniors and students).

Cantigas Choir Indian Dancer Aditi SundaramThe concert will feature the groundbreaking piece “All I Was Doing Was Breathing” from Ecstatic Songs by David L. Brunner, with original dancing performed by sixteen-year-old Aditi Sundaram, whose dance was choreographed by her teacher, Rhada, in India.

“One of the hallmarks of Cantigas is its bold and varied multicultural programming,” says Cantigas member and “All I Was Doing Was Breathing” soloist Jessica Smith. “With its driving rhythms and emotional Indian modal melodies, ‘All I Was Doing Was Breathing’ is a great fit for this passionate group of singers.”

Cantigas will also perform the melodic “Pslam 23” by Austrian Franz Schubert, the spirited Choral Hymns from the Rig-Vega by Englishman Gustav Holst, and the new-age “Adiemus” by Welsh Karl Jenkins, as well as pieces from Iran, Scotland, Cyprus, and Greece.

“Audiences should come to this concert to experience as wide an array of repertoire as could be fit into a single concert, from Schubert to Sweet Honey in the Rock,” Cantigas member Ann Evans says. “We dare you to leave unmoved.”

Cantigas Women’s Choir, named after a medieval Spanish song form called a “cantiga,” is composed of 40 women of varying ages and backgrounds and brings women of the community together to explore the rich tradition of women’s singing. The group performs a broad spectrum of global music and advocates through song for those whose hearts need to be uplifted and whose voices need to be heard, performing regularly with the inmates of the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women in Clinton, N.J., as well as at other community events like the Cancer Survivors Support Network in Bayonne, New Jersey, and the Empty Bowls hunger relief benefit in Hoboken.

Joan Isaacs Litman is the founding Artistic Director of Cantigas Women’s Choir. She is a native of Los Angeles and has taught students and teachers in the New York City area for 33 years. Ms. Litman is a member of the music faculty of the United Nations International School in Manhattan where she directs the UNIS Mothers’ Chorus and a children’s choir. She is a founder and former music teacher at Mustard Seed School and also taught at The Hudson School in Hoboken. With a longing to stimulate curiosity, trust and enjoyment of often-misunderstood cultures, Ms. Litman has focused her musical research on the Middle East, which she shares with teachers in cultural context. Ms. Litman is the author of Song Caravan: Songs of the Middle East. Ms. Litman has enjoyed teaching (and learning from!) both students and teachers throughout the United States and abroad, most recently in Spain, Syria, Lebanon, Japan and Hong Kong.

Assistant director Erasmia Voukelatos is a Canadian of Greek descent and has been active as a chamber musician and solo pianist, teacher, music director, and concert series presenter. Concerto appearances include Mozart Concerto in A Major and Haydn Concerto in D Major with the Canadian ensemble Mercredi Musique and Bach’s keyboard Concerto in D Minor, which was released on The Best of Brooklyn CD. She currently teaches piano and elementary and is on the music faculty at the Far Brook School in Short Hills, NJ. She enjoys collaborating with her husband, violinist Ashley Horne, and together they founded My Music Garden, a music enrichment program for schools. Voukelatos has been with Cantigas since its formation.

Cantigas Choir of Hoboken Winter Concert Features Music from Around Globe on December 15 at 7:30 pm

Filed under: Concert,Hoboken,Live Music — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 1:35 PM

TheBoken.com saw this group last year for their 10th annual holiday concert and will state that it is well worth the suggested donation for choral music lovers….

HOBOKEN CHOIR BRINGS THE GIFT OF

HOLIDAY MUSIC TO COMMUNITY

Cantigas’ Winter Concert Features Music from Around Globe on Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Hoboken’s all-women community chorus, Cantigas Women’s Choir, presents its 11th annual winter concert entitled A GIFT FOR THE SEASON: Songs from Near and Far on Saturday, December 15 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Matthew Trinity Church at 57 Eighth Street (at Hudson Street) in Hoboken, N.J. The suggestion donation for the concert is $15 ($5 for seniors and students).

“Our theme ‘A Gift for the Season’ was chosen well before Hurricane Sandy devastated our community,” says Joan Litman, Cantigas founder and director. “In light of all of the damage and loss Hoboken suffered, more than ever, music is truly a gift — and unites us by bringing hope and healing.”

The holiday-themed concert celebrates music from around the globe — including a Georgian wedding song “Shen Khar Venakhi,” a Spanish carol “A La Nanita Nana,” a traditional English carol “The Cherry Tree Carol,”  the Jewish folksong “S’vivon,” and the canon “Be Like the Bird” written by contemporary American composer Abbie Betinis with text from French poet Victor Hugo. The program will also feature three movements from J.S. Bach’s “Magnificat” featuring soprano Jessica Laurel Smith and the Italian Christmas carol “Gesu Bambino” featuring soloist Michelle Whitescarver.

“For those who enjoy live music and  diverse choral artistry, you won’t find it richer on this side of the Hudson River,” Litman says. “This concert features something for everyone — from sing-alongs of well-loved Christmas carols to the Cantigas debut of a little girl, Addie Mauldin, with the voice of an angel. In the season of devastation, those searching for inspiration and whose souls need to be uplifted should come and experience the transcendent beauty from the women of our own community.”

Cantigas also uses music to empower women with annual performances at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women in Clinton, N.J., Hamilton Park Health Care Facility in Jersey City, N.J., and other community groups in the New York and New Jersey area. “The social justice strand of our mission is one that is at the root of who we are,” Cantigas founder Joan Litman says. This year, the group will visit the Jersey City nursing home on December 18 as well the Hoboken homeless shelter on December 20.

Cantigas Women’s Choir, named after a medieval Spanish song form called a “cantiga,” is composed of 50 women of varying ages and backgrounds and brings women of the community together to explore the rich tradition of women’s singing. The group performs a broad spectrum of global music and advocates through song for those whose hearts need to be uplifted and whose voices need to be heard, performing regularly with the inmates of the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women in Clinton, N.J., as well as at other community events like the Cancer Survivors Support Network in Bayonne, New Jersey, and the Empty Bowls hunger relief benefit in Hoboken. Litman founded the group in September 2002.

Director Joan Isaacs Litman is a native of Los Angeles and has been a choral director in the New York metropolitan area for 30 years. She was awarded with the prestigious “Educator of the Year Award” by the Organization of American Kodaly Educators in Washington D.C., in March 2009. She also received the first “Excellence in Teaching” award from Westminster Choir College. Litman is a member of the music faculty of the United Nations International School in Manhattan and a member of the summer faculty at the Kodály Institute at Capital University. In April 2008, Litman was the guest conductor at the American International School in Even Yehuda, Israel, and her United Nations International School children’s chorus has performed for Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to New York. Additionally, Litman is the author of Song Caravan: Songs of the Middle East. She is a founder and Music Director Emerita of Mustard Seed School in Hoboken.

Naked in F Sharp : An Un-Dress Rehearsal at Hudson School October 3rd 3pm

Here is a free concert coming up at The Hudson School in Hoboken featuring a very talented local pianist in Pamela Ross and renowned cellist Adrian Daurov.  TheBoken.com assure readers this is a family event and has nothing to do with nudity but rather a an “undressed” approach to classical music.

Naked in F Sharp : An Un-Dress Rehearsal

a comedic musical presentation featuring pianist Pamela Ross and cellist Adrian Daurov

Where: The Hudson School, 601 Park Avenue, Hoboken New Jersey
When: Sunday, October 28, 3 PM
Admission: Free

About The Show:

Naked in F Sharp : An Un-Dress Rehearsal , featuring Pamela Ross/pianist and Adrian Daurov/cellist will be presented on Sunday, October 28th, at 3 PM at The Hudson School, 601 Park Avenue at Sixth Street, Hoboken. New Jersey. After the performance, the audience is invited to participate in an informal conversation with the artists/creators. Vintage tap water will be served in environmentally friendly paper cups. The show was conceived after two successful back to back duo concerts at Lincoln Center this past December, where the two performers realized that the audience was laughing a lot. Not knowing whether the attendees were laughing at them or with them, they decided to take the chance that either way, they’d come out ahead if they moved into the realm of “theater” and took themselves and their friendly and unfriendly detractors into the world of musical “fantality” – a combination of fantasy and reality. Come join them as they serve up ample portions of tangos, Brahms, the late Marvin “A Chorus Line” Hamlisch and others in a musical sundae on a Sunday.
