While Basque culture conjures up images of food like paella, tapas, chorizo and lamb grinders in the minds of many Boiseans, Basque music also has a commanding presence in the City of Trees, one that will be on display when the Biotzetik Basque Choir performs Wednesday, Dec. 6, in the Idaho Capitol Rotunda. The choir performs year round, and was founded in 1986 as the only Basque choir in the United States that regularly rehearses and gives concerts. Since its founding, the 50-member group has traveled to sing internationally, with stops including the Basque country; Washington, D.C.; and Ellis Island. With that kind of experience under their belts, this hometown performance of Basque and English Christmas carols is sure to be one for the books.
