Martenitsa 30th Anniversary Retrospective
Celebrating 30 years of performing, recording and broadcasting their unique choral sound, Sydney’s all female choir Martenitsa will perform a retrospective concert tracing three decades of thrilling performances around Australia and overseas.Martenitsa 30th Anniversary Retrospective features an all-star line-up including the angelic voice of Bulgarian soloist Silvia Entcheva, formerly of the famous Bulgarian choir ‘Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares’, who has performed with Martenitsa for 22 of their 30 year history, plus the virtuosic playing of jazz royalty Sandy Evans, Paul Cutlan and Lloyd Swanton and world music icons Llew and Mara Kiek of the Mara! band.

Martenitsa will showcase gems picked from their earliest Bulgarian traditional repertoire composed by some of Bulgaria’s finest composers, newer works composed especially for them by Australian composers and highlights from their two acclaimed original musical suites – ‘Sezoni’ and ‘Tra Parole e Silenzio – composed by and performed with Mara!.These two ground-breaking suites feature texts by Bulgarian/Australian poet Stefan Kozuharov and Italian poet Eduardo Di Giovanni, and have been performed to audiences in the poets’ home countries – Bulgaria (2005) and Italy (2015).

The performance will also be streamed live as part of Riverside Theatres Digital Concert Series
