LAMC: Andes to the Sea Print
Sunday, April 29 2012, 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Los Angeles Master Chorale presents

Andes to the Sea

Sunday, April 29, 2012, 7 pm


Sponsored by: The James Irvine Foundation

From the Andes to the plains, the mountains to the sea, South America has become a hotbed of musical innovation. The “Venezuelan choral miracle,” fostered by the same El Sistema that produced Gustavo Dudamel, has spawned over 2,000 new choirs and a brilliant crop of composers to meet an insatiable demand for repertoire. We’ll highlight works by Alberto Grau, María Guinand and the new generation of Venezuelan choral composers — everything from evocations of the earth goddess to rhythmically virtuoso popular songs of the barrios and the llanos. We invited back Huayucaltia, L.A.'s most innovative Latin American folk jazz ensemble, to join our singers in a world premiere by Gabriela Lena Frank. This colorful musical tapestry will be dramatic, vibrant, propulsive and fun!
