The program will feature Argentine composer Ariel Ramirez’s iconic Misa Criolla, which has been called “a stunning artistic achievement.” Misa Criolla is sung in Spanish and draws on traditional folk genres to create an unforgettable musical experience. The concert also includes a compelling variety of Shaker songs, spirituals, traditional hymns, bluegrass, American folk and roots music, and more. The choir of 100 voices will be accompanied by fiddle, guitar, piano, and percussion.
“The great beauty of the Americas lies in the vast diversity of the stories we have to tell,” said Artistic Director Dr. Ryan Brandau. “Our program brings to life a handful of these stories of the American experience, in the way that only music can — stories of people seeking home, and sometimes even finding it.”
The performance will take place at the First Presbyterian Church of Freehold, 118 W. Main Street, Freehold, NJ. Tickets are $30 adult, $27 senior, $25 group, $10 student. Tickets and information are available at www.monmouthcivicchorus.org or (732) 933-9333.
