Get excited about the theme of our fall concert: Music from Spanish Speaking Countries! We will be learning music from Cuba, Venezuela, Mexico, Spain, and many other places. Expect to groove with some local salsa band musicians and see some latin dancing.
I encourage all chorus students to attend La Fiesta del Pueblo 2009, a local Latino festival held this coming weekend (8/29 and 8/30) at the Raleigh fairgrounds. Here is the link to the event's website. If you click on "schedule" you can see when all the different musicians will be performing. If a student attends and takes a picture of herself there, she can get extra credit. In addition, there will be lots of good music and delicious food. I hope you get a chance to get a taste of Latino culture at this festival.
If you know a lot about this topic (maybe you grew up in Puerto Rico, etc), please let me know! I would love all the help I can get! Thank you in advance. :)
