Christmas Revelry in Colonial Latin America

December 2012

with special guests, Tom Zajac (early winds and percussion), Scott Pauley (Baroque guitar), Patricia Halverson (viola da gamba)

Join us this holiday season as we “dance our way to Bethlehem” in this new Christmas production featuring festive and earthy music from early Chile, Bolivia, Mexico, and beyond. Colonial Latin America was a melting pot of ethnic diversity, when newcomers wrestled with local traditions, and cultural conflict was often reconciled through musical collaboration. Dances from the streets of Mother Spain mingle with African rhythms and indigenous languages, while celebration turns glorious in the pageantry of the Franciscan missions of California and New Mexico. Rose Ensemble holiday concerts sell out every year, so don’t delay!
