Golosa has a lot going on this winter, so this message is an announcement of a concert this coming week as well as a preview of the next couple of months. We hope to see you soon!
Friday, January 22, 7:00 p.m. – We are happy to be singing for the first time at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood. The beautiful cathedral-like Gothic building, more than one hundred years old, was formerly All Saints Catholic Church. We will sing a full set of sacred and spiritual music, including a few pieces from the Russian Orthodox liturgy, as well as some of our favorite Siberian folk songs. Covenant Church sponsors a regular evening music series in which we are pleased to take part. Please join us for this special concert. The church is located at 2012 W. Dickens Ave. in Chicago.
Thursday, January 28, 8:00 p.m. – The University of Chicago’s second annual Winter Arts Festival will take place throughout the Reynolds Club student center, with performances, visual art exhibitions, workshops, and free food for all. Golosa will be singing around 8:00 in the Hallowed Grounds coffee shop on the second floor. The Arts Fest is a truly fun way to spend an evening, and everything is completely free! The Reynolds Club is located at 5706 S. University Ave.
Weekend of February 13-14 – The 50th anniversary of the University of Chicago Folk Festival is also a milestone for Golosa: after several years of work, our second full-length CD is finally complete and will be available at our annual Folk Fest workshop!
Golosa will perform at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13, in Ida Noyes Hall. Please check the schedules available on the day of the performance for the room location. We will be the last performance of the afternoon, so save your strength for us.
Our second full-length CD is titled “Until Bright Day” and contains many of our favorite songs, like “Poyekhal Kazak”, “Zhil ya u Pana”, and “Rasti da Rasti”. It will be available for sale for the first time ever at the Folk Festival! We are incredibly excited to have completed it, and hope that you’ll agree it was worth the wait.
Ida Noyes is located at 1212 E. 59th St. in Hyde Park.
