2016 VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! Community Concert Podcast – 6 PM

Experience the music of our southern neighbors at a multi-generational fiesta! Prominent Mexican composers work as composers-in-residence with school choirs, community choruses, and VocalEssence to bring the sounds of Mexico to Minnesota. In 2015-2016, students met with acclaimed composers Alephsus Valdés (for elementary students) and Francisco Zúñiga Olmos (for high school students) over three visits, for a total of four weeks between October and May, to collaborate and compose new choral pieces; the final works premiered at the Ordway Concert Hall in Saint Paul, MN on Monday, May 23, 2016.
