This chorus has been performing Latin American New Song—Nueva Canción—for over 35 years. Accompanied by guitars, flutes, drums, and a large assortment of Latin American instruments, the Chorus has sung for schools, churches, homeless shelters, retirement homes, drug rehab centers, benefits for farm workers, and peace demonstrations and rallies.
The Chorus has traveled to Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, and Argentina and has passed on to each new audience the music learned and the stories collected. Admission is free.
