Sunday Forum: VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! Bringing music across the border and into the classroom
Join us to learn how music by our southern neighbor, Mexico, is enriching the lives of students of all ages across the metropolitan area. Composers Rodrigo Cadet and Samuel Pascoe will talk about how they participate as artists-in-residence with elementary schools, high schools, colleges and community organizations. The composers work directly with student choirs, becoming familiar with the ensembles, writing new music specifically for each which culminates in an Ordway concert in May—and having great fun in the process!
Celebrating rich Mexican musical traditions, VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! is a cross-cultural exchange program connecting composers from Mexico with students of all ages across the metropolitan area.
