One of the things I love most about music is its ability to bring people together; Women of the World, who will appear at the Berklee Performance Center on February 25th, is a group that does just that. Currently a 10-piece all-female ensemble, Women of the World aims to unite women musicians to perform and learn together and offers women a chance to sing a varied repertoire of folk and traditional music. Founded in 2008, this ensemble has collaborated with many Grammy Award-winning artists and has performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Boston Symphony Hall, and even the Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival. For its spring concert, Women of the World will present Koloro, a multi-art production paying tribute to the many colors in nature, culture, and life. On February 25th, they will perform choral arrangements and experimental a capella works with a World Peace Choir, an ensemble consisting of more than 50 women musicians from all over the world. The concert takes place at the Berklee Performance Center at 8:15 pm. Tickets are $8 in advance (discount applied at checkout) and $12 day of show, and can be purchased here. I sincerely hope to see you there, but as always, if you can’t make the show, watch it live on Concert Window.
