Ensemble Adilei Concert

adelaiSomeone sent us some info about a concert happening in the Chapel:

Ensemble Adilei performs traditional Georgian polyphonic songs and chants. Most of the members were introduced to folk singing in their families or children’s music groups ear on in life. After informally singing together for several years, they officially formed the ensemble and started conducting regular rehearsals in 2012.
Adilei’s main passion lies in the songs from the province of Guria in Western Georgia, which is the most musically developed region in the country, though other regions are also represented in their repertoire. Gurian music has often been compared to jazz, because improvisation is its main component, and all the voice parts move independently of each other, creating contrapuntal polyphony. Gurian song is also characterized by krimanchuli, a yodeling technique often present in the upper voice.

For the members of Adilei singing is the primary mode of communication with the world: it is more of a lifestyle than a performance practice—it is not just relegated to official concerts. They sing every time they gather, wherever that may be.

From the CFA:

We see in stereo: each eye registers something different, and the information contained in each is then stitched together in our brains, resulting in a three-dimensional visualization—something more complex, and greater in meaning, than when read as two separate images.

“Stereoscopic Vision,” the Brazilian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Clarissa Tossin‘s first solo exhibition in the Northeast, features key objects in photography, sculpture, and video from several bodies of work to highlight the dualities between natural and manufactured; two and three-dimensions; co-dependent economies; intention and actuality; and the United States and Brazil.

Support for this exhibition provided by Wesleyan University’s College of the Environment and the Department of Art and Art History.

The opening reception for this exhibition is on Tuesday, January 31 at 4:30 PM in the Zilkha Gallery.

Exhibition Dates: Tuesday, January 31 through Sunday, March 5
Times Open: Tuesday-Sunday, 12-5 PM
Place: Zilkha Gallery
