Our plan to get Solstice here on the actual solstice — June 21 — didn’t work out. But seeing as they’re one of our very favorite musical groups, we’re happy to have them anytime. This will be their third appearance on Rose Avenue.
Solstice has enthralled audiences with their technically precise and passionate treatment of music for women’s voices since 1996. Each Solstice member brings her own musical tastes and talents to the group, which creates a diverse, dynamic repertoire. From Bartók to Björk, from Palestrina to Paul Simon, Solstice shares the music they love from around the world and through the ages.
Solstice has performed in many Bay Area venues including The Freight and Salvage, La Peña Cultural Center, the San Francisco Community Music Center, Music on the Hill, the Berkeley Arts Center, Trinity Chamber Concert Series, and Montalvo Arts Center. Solstice has also performed on KALW’s Folk Music and Beyond On-Air Folk Festival. At the 2007 San Francisco Regional Harmony Sweepstakes, Solstice was awarded first place, and Becca Burrington’s arrangement of Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” won Best Original Arrangement.
“We love this group! Complex, difficult harmonies, well- chosen, rarely-heard selections, sung with spirit and joy.”
