Experience a preview workshop of a world-premiere oratorio by Alejandro Zuleta “El Oratorio Panhispánico”. This new composition tells the Passion of Christ through the lens of Hispanic immigrants. Zuleta composed this piece entirely in Spanish through the poetic form of “décimas”, and his music utilizes a mix of contemporary classical sound and Latin American musical genres such as Zamba Argentina, Huapango Mexicano, and Currulao Colombiano, to name a few. This interactive workshop will involve 14 singers and 10 instrumentalists who will collaborate on a section of this oratorio. A short Q&A and reception to follow. We hope you can join us for a peek into the process!
