Take an inside look at the process of making poetry into performance with this reading, workshop, and concert all in one. Following up on last year's commission, "The Edge of a Season," this year we present composer B. E. Boykin's setting of Ishmael Angaluuk Hope's poem "Storyteller."
Come hear incredible local field recordings of humpback and sperm whales - plus an inside look at a new piece for vocal quartet and whale song by Nate Barnett. What's the difference between listening to music and listening to sounds from nature, and how do they go together? Come share your questions, ideas, and impressions! Sponsored by the Sitka Sound Science Center.
The Uncommon Music Festival teams up with Sitka Tells Tales for an evening of live music and storytelling. The theme is Encounters with the Unknown: how has encountering something new changed you? From spoken tales to musical performance to friendly conversation, this event offers uniquely Sitkan entertainment.
An opportunity to hear the musicians of the Uncommon Music Festival individually. We come to Sitka to work together as an ensemble, but we each have our own voices and our own music to share. Featuring a selection of solo guitar, keyboard, and vocal music through the ages, curated by our own artists.
As always, our flagship concert offers something for everyone. Featuring our 2019 commission "Storyteller" (composed by B.E. Boykin on a poem by Ishmael Angaluuk Hope), competition winner "Ruri, Ruri," gems from past festivals, and much more. Join us for this evening of uncommon musical storytelling in Centennial Hall.
Join us in celebrating the artistic creation of women in the Church with St. Peter's by-the-Sea for the third year running. We welcome everyone to enjoy sacred music by women throughout history alongside readings, poetry, and prayers selected by the Reverend Julie Platson.
The third edition of our annual musical walk through the woods. Together with staff from the Sitka Sound Science Center, we'll guide you through Sitka National Historical Park with music along the way. It's the perfect way to say goodbye to Sitka - until next year.
