The central work of the concert, Missa Latina by Bobbi Fischer, is a complete setting of the Latin Mass for chorus, solo soprano, and a band consisting of violin, accordion, and jazz ensemble of piano, double bass, drums and percussion. The word “Latina” not only refers to the Latin text, but also to the musical style which makes use of Latin American rhythms. Elements from Argentinian tangos stand side by side with Caribbean rhythms and Latin jazz with space provided for instrumental improvisations. With this mass, the composer has succeeded in building a bridge between the music of Europe and that of South America. Featured performers include George Woodward on accordion and soprano soloist Naomi Isabel Ruiz Wickson, https://www.naomiisabelruiz.com.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting concert!
