The Sounds of Africa with Choral Music of Many Voices
Join Escondido Choral Arts June 3 at 3 p.m. for the final concert of the season.
Escondido Choral Arts’ final concert is an unusual and exciting one. African Sanctus is a major choral work that incorporates authentic songs and drumming by African musicians integrated with his composition based on traditional Latin texts.
David Fanshawe, world traveler, musicologist, and composer collected thousands of recorded examples of African music in the 1970s. In the performance of African Sanctus, Fanshawe’s recordings are played, interspersed with his choral writing on traditional Latin texts, and in addition, his photographs accompany the performance.
Jane Fanshawe, a special guest visiting from England, will introduce African Sanctus. David died in 2010 and left his legacy in the hands of his wife, Jane, who is a lively, energetic proponent of her husband’s music. The Center Children’s Chorus joins with The Center Chorale to perform this late Twentieth Century masterpiece.
The concert will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, 845 Chestnut St, Escondido on Sunday, June 3 at 3 p.m. Tickets: $12, Adult, and $5 Student. Tickets are available online at: For more information contact:
