Three Things To Know
- All ages are welcome at this concert, and it is best enjoyed by children ages eight and up.
- Through VocalEssence ¡Cantaré!, composers from Mexico participate as artists-in-residence with elementary schools, high schools, and community organizations. The composers work directly with student choirs and community choruses throughout the year, writing new music specifically for each ensemble. This concert is the world premiere of their music!
- This is the 12th year of the VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! program which has reached more than 5,000 students and created more than 175 new Mexican choral works.
