Cost is $5 per person. Workshop attendees will receive a $5 off tickets to Chirgilchin’s Nov. 9 performance. Throat singing is an extraordinary vocal form in which one singer produces two or more voices at the same time, one voice harmonizing with the others. This ancient tradition is kept alive in just a few countries across Central Asia, south of Siberia. The group Chirgilchin is from Tuva, a small federal subject of Russia that is home to the world’s best throat singers.
A performance is scheduled for Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. in the Erie Art Museum Annex. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for Erie Art Museum and Jazz Erie members and $10 for students and seniors.
