White Raven (16.12.2022)

It has been too long since we had a live, in-person event. So, we have decided to get the GLAS ball rolling again with a Christmas concert featuring the remarkable acapella vocal trio, White Raven, on Friday, December 16 in the beautiful setting of Geneva’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in the heart of the old town

White Raven sing arrangements of Irish and Scottish traditional and medieval song. They are based in Basel where founder, soprano and harpist, Kate Dineen teaches medieval voice at the renowned Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. She is joined by American tenor Robert Gretchell and French baritone Mathias Spoerry. They have performed widely across Europe to great acclaim.

All funds raised will go to the Edith Wilkins Foundation for Street Children in Darjeeling.
