This winter holiday tradition showcases seasonal music from a wide variety of Eastern European ethnic and spiritual traditions. Kitka's program features songs ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols; to lush meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works; to Baltic pagan incantations for the return of the Sun Goddess, to Caucasus Georgian Alilos(hallelujahs); to Yiddish, Sephardic, and Hebrew songs for Chanukah; to Bosnian-Muslim ilahijas(devotional hymns); to rhythmic Balkan Romany ("Gypsy") tunes for the winter festivals of Vasilica and Kurban Bajram.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin had to say about Wintersongs :

The exemplary Bay Area women’s choir refreshes its seasonal concert with traditional songs from many cultures—Baltic pagan incantations, sacred Christian choral works and Yiddish Chanukah tunes—with new charts and compositions by Kitka members and others inspired by winter.
