Beautiful Songs from Latin America is a recital featuring the Advanced Latin and Jazz Performance Workshop for Vocalists class, directed by faculty vocalist Mili Bermejo.
Each semester, the recital presents the work of voice students who have selected, transcribed, and rehearsed music from different regions and styles of Latin America. The songs and arrangements reflect the lyrical and poetic content of these different musics, genres, and grooves, as well as jazz and Latin aesthetics. The recital includes seven singers plus staff members' stellar band, featuring piano, guitar, double bass, drums, and percussion.
Students and faculty of the Music Education Department perform an eclectic program of music each semester. The program includes faculty- and student-directed ensembles as well as individual performances. Each semester's program is unique and includes a wide variety of styles and genres.
