ASU Choirs to Honor Hispanic Tradition in Concert
The Angelo State University Chamber Singers and Vocal Ensemble will honor the Hispanic tradition of All Souls Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, when they perform a “Concert at the Hermitage.”
The 7 p.m. concert at the Mount Carmel Hermitage in Christoval, which is open free to the public, will observe the tradition of Dia de los Muertos, as it is known throughout Latin America. People in many Central and South American countries honor the dead from mid-October through the first week of November.
The performance will feature the “Misa Criolla” by Argentine composer Ariel Ramirez and traditional folk music of Spain and Mexico. “Misa Criolla” was composed in 1963 and draws from a variety of Argentine and Bolivian folk styles.
