A Talented Group of A Cappella Singers
Slaveya Vocal Ensemble, name came from the Bulgarian word for nightingale. We are a women’s vocal ensemble that focuses on performing East European a cappella folk music. In addition to folk songs, we sing sacred vocal music from the orthodox traditions of the Balkans and Georgia.
We have been a member of the folk music and dance community in the Mid-Atlantic region since 1984. In our years singing in front of an audience, we have had several memorable performances, including:
Slaveya members are Theadocia Austen, Beth Bienvenu, Rebecca Caldwell, Karen Chittenden, Helen Fedor, Anne Harrison, Jennifer Lee, Betsy Platt and Miriam Rollin.
