7:00 pm: Pre-concert discussion with Artistic Director
7:30 pm: Concert
Come enjoy a spring concert with Border CrosSing, which integrates historically segregated audiences and musicians by creating a landscape where singers and audiences more closely reflect the racial and cultural composition of the Twin Cities. This concert will feature songs and poetry of love and nature by Latin American authors such as Neruda, Benedetti, and Paz, whose multiple layers of meaning have changed through history. Together we’ll explore how immigration can change music, stories, and culture over time.
COST: Tickets for this event can be purchased through Border CrosSing.
This event will be held in Our Lady of the Presentation Chapel; the chapel is attached to the east side of the Carondelet Center and faces Randolph Avenue.
Border CrosSing is led by Ahmed Fernando Anzaldúa El Samkary, a Mexican conductor and pianist of Egyptian descent who is a recognized authority in Latin American and Spanish music and co-editor of the Justice Choir songbook.
