Border CrosSing: Black Christ of the Andes
October 19 @ 7:00 pm$10 – $20
Puentes is a series of choral concerts that offers audiences the opportunity to connect to Latin American history, culture, and repertoire that is rarely or never performed in the United States. Concerts offer program notes in English and Spanish, and often combine traditional classical styles with non-classical Latin American genres.
Explore religious faith in the Americas throughout history seen through the lens of sacred choral music from different periods. Highlights of this program include a unique interpretation of Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez and selections from jazz composer and pianist Mary Lou Williams‘ rarely performed choral masterwork, Black Christ of the Andes. Pre-concert talk by director Ahmed Anzaldua at 6:30pm.
Founded in 2017, Border CrosSing envisions fundamental change in classical music culture, so that every concert, every audience, and the artists on stage truly reflect the cultural reality in which we live. Our work provides opportunities for people from different communities to understand each other in new ways through our multi-lingual Puentes concert series, educational programs in schools, and collaborations with Minnesota’s most important cultural organizations, including The Schubert Club and Minnesota Orchestra.
