“Tantz, Samba & Soul,” a tour de force performance of new orchestrations and arrangements, pushes cultural boundaries and celebrates the connections of Jewish, Latin and African-American music. The concert is a finale for “KULTUR Festival 2009,” an inaugural five-day celebration of Jewish music and arts, which kicks off at Florida Atlantic University on Wednesday, February 25.
KCO, under the direction of Aaron Kula, is the professional ensemble-in-residence at FAU Libraries. The 12-year-old ensemble has successfully taken music in the library’s collections “from shelf to stage.”
The Ebony Chorale, under the direction of Orville Lawton, has distinguished itself as one of the finest choral ensembles in Florida. In addition to Negro spirituals, the chorale’s repertoire includes sacred and secular classics, folk songs, pop and gospel.
