At 4 p.m.,
Crescendo's spring program will be "Hidden Treasures of Latin American Choral Music." The Crescendo Chorus and Vocal Ensemble, soloists and the ensemble, Alturas Duo, will perform Latin American secular and sacred music from Colonial times to the present. The earliest work is a processional hymn of the Incas sung in the ancient language of Quechua; the most recent, a contemporary piece based on a Pablo Neruda poem. The singers will be accompanied by rarely-heard instruments such as the charango, a guitar-like instrument made from an armadillo shell, as well as Baroque and modern instruments. Crescendo founder Christine Gevert will conduct.
Pre Concert Talk 30 minutes prior to performances. Tickets are $25 for Adults and $10 under 18.
