Culture Connect Featured Event
Avant-garde performer Iva Bittova will give the third concert in the 38th season of the Collomore Music Series in the historic Chester Meetinghouse on Sunday, April 22, at 5 p.m. Influenced by jazz, rock, Czechoslovakian folk music, and classical violin training, Bittova creates unique vocal and violin sounds that have always been described as thrilling and impossible to categorize. As expected from an artist featured in a Czech film nominated for an Academy Award in 2004, Bittova's performances have a dramatic cohesion that is spellbinding. She will be accompanied by bassist George Mraz.
