Bulgarian Vocal Music Workshop Series with Orfeia


Join us for this 3-part series of workshops devoted to the art of traditional Bulgarian vocal music.

Orfeia Vocal Ensemble is partnering with Rhizome for a special music workshop for children and adults of all ages. Students will learn songs and stories from Bulgaria and other parts of Eastern Europe in this fun and educational program. No singing experience is necessary.

The workshop will be taught by Tatiana Sarbinska and members of Orfeia Vocal Ensemble.

People of all ages and backgrounds are captivated by the unique harmonies, ornamentation, and rhythms of Balkan music - and the stories behind the songs are just as fun. The program includes three rehearsals and a public performance.
