Musae, the groundbreaking twelve-voice women's vocal ensemble,
concludes its 5th Anniversary Season with two special concerts in
collaboration with the acclaimed Bossa Five-O, a Bay Area bossa nova
The concerts should be fun and entertaining for families and music
afficionados alike, as they feature the rhythms of Brazil ("Más Que
Nada") and Hawaii (Princess Lili'uokalani's "Ahe Lau Makani"), alongside
favorite melodies and texts from Europe and Canada ("O Magnum Mysterium"
by Tomas Luis de Victoria and "Song for the Mira").
Musae's mission is to stretch the boundaries of traditional
repertoire for women's voices. To that end, the concerts also
feature two new commissioned pieces for women's voices.
