Our focus in this concert is on the music of South America. Preparing the program has been a labor of love, and has opened us up to a new and diverse and interesting repertoire. Amir Milstein and the Tucan Trio have introduced us to a fascinating blend of South American and Israeli styles. Many of these songs mesh popular Latin rhythms and melodies with Hebrew lyrics. There are three settings of sacred texts by Argentinian composers. We reprise a satirical Hebrew cabaret song about young Israelis seeking adventure in Venezuela. And we have included as a bonus two classic choral works by Argentinian composers — they’re not specifically Jewish, but they’re great fun! Olé!
