Celebrate Culture. Celebrate Sisterhood. Celebrate Song.
Rite of Wintertide
Saturday, December 11th, 7:30pm
Out of the darkness and into the light, Cantigas returns to live music making with a sampling of music from many wintertime traditions. From Greek Orthodox saints to the Buddha, from Persian New Year celebrations to Norwegian folk songs, the unique voice of Cantigas will once again bring joy to the shorter days and longer nights. Join us at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church (440 Hoboken Ave, Jersey City).
Masks required, along with proof of full vaccination or a negative covid test taken within 72 hours of the performance (children also need to follow this protocol).
Suggested Donation: $20, Students and Seniors: $10. We can't wait to share the music with you!
Cantigas Women's Choir is a non-profit organization, made up of a diverse and inclusive group of women, based in Hudson County, NJ. As part of our mission, through the power of our voices, we work to connect audiences of all backgrounds by performing a broad spectrum of music, both ancient and contemporary, from singing traditions around the world. We come together to grow musically, connect with each other personally, and honor the people whose music we sing.
In addition to our community outreach, Cantigas has performed for the Eastern Division of the American Choral Directors Association (in 2010) and works from composers including Leonardo San Juan, Paul Hennessee, Lillian Redl, and Wassim Ibrahim, whose "Damascus Breeze" premiered at Cantigas's spring 2015 concert. In the summer of 2016, a group of Cantigas traveled to Buenos Aires to sing with sister choir Coral Femenino de Caballito and Coral San Cirano.
