There is no question that the co-existence of traditions is widely reflected in the music of North and South America. A melting pot of musical ideas can be witnessed in the eclectic musical styles that reflect the diversity of the various peoples living in the New World. The Wichita Chamber Chorale and Brazilian-American conductor Mariana Farah will proudly present a program exploring the rich choral tradition of all Americas. The program will highlight sacred and secular works of different countries, languages, and various ethnic traditions.
