Outsound presents Vox Venefica
SIMM Series at Musicians’ Union Hall / 116 Ninth Street (near Mission) San Francisco CA
Vox Venefica is a brand-new collaboration between vocalists Valentina Osinski and Chiara Viscomi, accompanied by pianist Eli Wallace. Their various influences are distilled through one unifying ethos: an exploration of the sonic tapestries of the female voice and experience: from ethereal to chthonic; and refined to raw, uninhibited, and undomesticated. Ultimately, this exploration is fueled by allowing the music to become a channel for the collective un/conscious, by duende, and by the relationship between performers and audience.
Valentina Osinski has sung as a soloist throughout the US for major opera companies such as San Francisco Opera, New York City Opera, and Opera Theater of St. Louis, has performed for Hillary Clinton at the Palace of Fine Arts, sung on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, on MTV, at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, at the Seattle Center, and as a soloist with the San Francisco Symphony. Valentina was an award-winning vocal arranger with her a cappella group Screaming Divas, and recently received the 2014 Bay Area Theatre Critic Circle Award for Featured Actress for her portrayal of Jacqueline in La Cage Aux Folles. Her newly commissioned show “Edith Piaf: Beneath Paris Skies” opened for an extended run in January 2015 at Cinnabar Theater to unanimous, rave reviews. Ms. Osinski currently performs with Tri-Cornered Tent Show and is at work producing and recording her solo chill wave music project Nymphya.
