¡Cantaré! Chicago Community Concert

May 2019

Now in its third year, ¡Cantaré! Chicago is an educational program that combines Mexican heritage with choral singing. Our esteemed Mexican composer-in-residence, Julio Morales, will work throughout the school year with elementary and high schools in Chicago. The composer writes new music for each school, our High School Apprentice Ensemble, and Chicago a cappella. All the ensembles will perform separately, and then will come together for one final group performance. 

Free tickets will be available at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Participating schools are Solorio Academy High School, Golder College Prep, Hanson Park Elementary, and Erie Elementary.
