OTTAWA CHORAL SOCIETY
Misa a Buenos Aires (Misatango) by Martin Palmeri
June 11, 2023 @ 3pm
Church of St. Francis of Assisi
20 Fairmont Avenue
The final concert of Ottawa Choral Society’s season on June 11 will feature the works of Latin American composers, including MisaTango by Martín Palmeri, a setting of the mass that exploits the intensely emotional heart of the distinctly Argentine musical form.
Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah will be the soloist accompanied by an authentic ensemble of strings, piano, and bandoneón.
An original commission for the Choral Society by Cuban-Canadian composer Alondra Vega-Zaldivar will also be performed, along with works by Alberto Ginastera, Carlos Guastavino, and Violeta Parra.
