Arts Announcements ~ A Service Of Your Arts Council

       I would like to introduce you to My Divas, a singing group from Lake County, California, consisting entirely of women. We sing “a cappella” (which means “without accompaniment”) madrigals: intricately interwoven melodies in three- or four-part harmonies. Our songs are mostly from Renaissance-era England, Italy, France, and Spain. They are short and sweet and fun; drinking songs or little stories about lovers wooing, loves lost or spurned, crickets and birds, shepherds and fairies, flowers, the moon, springtime, dancing, and even some nonsense lyrics like “fa la lahs.” Songs of this era often had hidden meanings and racy undertones. Some of the songs use syncopation, a first in western music and not heard again until the Jazz era!
       We dress in colorful Renaissance-era costumes or in evening dress, and perform onstage or out among the crowds at wineries, restaurants and bars, at theatrical events, private parties, and local community events and fundraisers. In 2011–2012, we performed at the Renaissance Christmas Pageant & Feast in Middletown; at the annual Lake Renaissance Festival at the Tuscan Village in Lower Lake; at Eleven Roses Ranch in Spring Valley; at a “Toys for Tots” Christmas event in Lower Lake for congressman Mike Thompson; at the Orchard Park Assisted Living Center in Clearlake at Christmas; for the Lakeport Rotary Club, and the Middletown Lion’s Club Christmas Party; at the 3rd Annual Olive Festival in Kelseyville; at the Summer of Peace opening concert, on St. Patrick’s Day at Hawk & Horse Vineyards in Lower Lake, and at other wineries, wine tastings, and special events. We were the musical accompaniment to a production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet at the Soper-Reese Theatre in Lakeport, and opened for Triskela Celtic Harp Trio at the same venue.
       We invite you to visit our website or contact us to learn more about My Divas (left). Rest assured that we will collaborate with you so that you can stay within your budget. We hope you will consider My Divas for your next event!
