About this Event
The FAU choral organizations present a concert highlighting the choral works of women and Afro-American composers and Latin American pieces with African roots. This year is the centennial of the 19th Amendment (passed by Congress in 1919 and ratified in 1920); a momentous occasion in the history of women’s rights. The FAU Women’s Chorus, under the direction of Stacie Lee Rossow, will celebrate this landmark by seeking to tell the story in a choral program celebrating women composers through women’s voices. FAU’s ¡Cantemos! and Chamber Singers, directed by Patricia P. Fleitas, will highlight choral music of Latin American with African traits as well as compositions by women and Afro-American composers.
