kallisti  - QUEEN OF THE ETHER 
kallisti presents an evening of vocal music for women's voices, featuring works by four extraordinary composers from across the globe:  Elizabeth Angot, Karin Rehnqvist, Katharina Rosenberger, and Ana Sokolovic. The works featured on the program encompass an astonishing range of musical and vocal expression, including Rosenberger's intimate works which reference the virtuosic singing of the Baroque and Renaissance, and Angot's playful interwoven structures.  Sokolović's Six Songs for Sirens is an exuberant (at times, raucous) celebration of the female singing voice, utilizing iconic female Balkan choral sounds as an integral part of the fifteen minute work.  Finally, kallisti is pleased to present the San Diego premiere of Karin Rehnqvist's Puksånger/Lockrop (Herding Calls) which includes 'kulning', a particular form of folk singing used to communicate over long distances,  as well as Rehnqvist's masterwork Vishentens lov (In Praise of Wisdom).
