Join us for our cavalcade of American and Latin American music as we prepare for our tour to Argentina in the summer of 2015! Hear the music we will be showcasing in the tour performances, and help us celebrate the arrival of a new CD, Mostly Made in America, a homage to the heritage and music of the Americas.
Our musical arc in this concert will include Jubilate Deo by Griffin, Thou Famished Grave by Garrop, and I live in pain by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang. Back by popular demand is the deeply moving Famine Song, alongside a calming arrangement of Healing River by PWC alumna Sheena Phillips, suggesting juxtapositions in life, from turmoil to peace and tranquility – the sounds of a healing river flowing home.
