FolkWorks To Present Intimate Concert Series In Santa Monica In October:

An intimate new concert series is coming to the Santa Monica History Museum starting in October.

FolkWorks, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving and promoting the folk/traditional arts, will present the series.

The opening concert on Saturday, Oct. 6, will feature Nevenka, a popular Los Angeles-based women’s chorus that brings to life vocal folk/roots traditions from around the world.

FolkWorks board member Monika White said their songs range from Bulgaria, Georgia, Russia, Bosnia to Rom and Sephardic songs – as well as recently added American and Irish music.

“Their spellbinding harmonies are at the core of their eclectic repertoire,” White said.

“Whether a simple American song or the complex harmonies of Bulgaria the voices of Nevenka’s women are sure to move you. While mostly singing a cappella, they are occasionally accompanied by percussion, mandolin, guitar, citern or panduri.”

She said the Santa Monica History Museum is the perfect venue for this intimate, acoustic concert.

“The museum is a nonprofit community cultural center, dedicated to preserving and sharing regional history. It will be open to concertgoers at 6:30 p.m. for a tour and refreshments prior to the concert.”

The next concert at the Museum will be a holiday event on December 15.

Date: October 6, 2012.

Times: Museum open 6:30 p.m. Box Office 7:15 p.m. Concert 8 p.m.

Venue: Santa Monica History Museum, 1350 7th Street, Santa Monica.

Tickets: General Admission $15 / FolkWorks Members $13.
