WAVE (Women’s Antique Vocal Ensemble): Benefit Concert

Some of you may be aware that Cindy Beitmen, the founder and director of WAVE (the Women’s Antique Vocal Ensemble), was recently diagnosed with colorectal cancer. After 18 years of leading, directing, and inspiring us, she is now leaving the group in order to focus on her treatment and recovery. To honor her and help raise funds for her during this difficult time, WAVE is producing a benefit concert for her on Thursday, June 8. We’re excited to announce that for this special concert, WAVE will be joined by the WAVE All-Stars, under the musical direction of Shira Kammen.

honor of Cindy, please send a check payable to WAVE and earmark it in the memo section for the WAVE Founder’s Fund to WAVE, PO Box 688, Berkeley, CA 94701-0688.

Barefoot Chamber Concerts
Music from Le Roman de Fauvel. Bay Area icons Shira Kammen (vielle, medieval harp, voice), Letitia Berlin (recorder, douçaine, voice), Phoebe Jevtovic Rosquist (voice, bells), and Paul Thompson (voice), performing music from the 14th-century Roman de Fauvel. The Roman de Fauvel is a satirical French poem comprised of fascinating and immensely varied monophonic and polyphonic music and texts. Written in Paris in 1314, the piece is an allegorical tale of a heinous horse who rises to prominence in the French royal court, and through lyrics and music expresses the self-serving hypocrisy of men, and the excesses of those in power. The poem, though banned at the time for being seditious and heretical, was wildly successful and still copied into the 15th century. The compositions range from gorgeous love songs to edgy polyphony of the Ars Nova.

6 PM
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Parish Hall
2300 Bancroft Way, Berkeley
All tickets $15 18 and under admitted free and welcome.
