Rhythms of Argentina highlight Westchester Chorale’s next performance
After last season’s highly acclaimed performance of Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo in seven languages, the Westchester Chorale is looking forward to presenting its next concert, “Rhythms from the Pampas” sung entirely in Spanish.
The production showcases the works by two popular 20th-century Argentine composers, Ariel Ramirez and Carlos Guastavino.
Ramirez’s Navidad Nuestra celebrates Christmas Latin American style with plentiful syncopation exuberantly sung with the backup of the Elqui Trio who play traditional South American instruments including charango, bomba, quena, and zampoña as well as guitar.
These same delightful rhythms are reflected in Guastavino’s six love songs, Indianas, which are sometimes witty, sometimes melancholic but always engaging. No translation from Spanish is necessary when we sing “I love the light of dawn because it kisses you” – Guastavino’s music says it all.
Save the date for this special event which paints vivid, lively pictures of Argentina:
“Rhythms from the Andes”
