he Central City Chorus, a mixed chorus of fifty singers, will be holding auditions for its 2006-2007 season on Thursday evening, August 31 and also Thursday, September 7. their season features music by J. S. Bach, Vincent Persichetti, Eric Whitacre, Osvaldo Golijov, Ariel Ramirez, Virgil Thomson and Felix Mendelssohn. Their first concert on Saturday, December 9 is an all-Bach program, and includes the famous Magnificat in D and Cantata 61 Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland, as well as excerpts from other seasonal cantatas of Bach. The soloists for this concert will be auditioned from the chorus membership. Their second concert on Saturday, March 10 consists of music for chorus and percussion, including David Conte’s exuberant Invocation and Dance, the NYC premiere of Steve Heitzeg’s Leaf Songs, and excerpts from Vincent Persichetti’s Winter Cantata for women’s voices. In addition they will perform Virgil Thomson’s Hymns From The Old South, the Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez, and “Demo gracias” from Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov’s St. Mark Passion. Our final event of the season occurs on Saturday May 19 and Sunday May 20, and consists of two performances of Felix Mendelssohn’s masterful oratorio Elijah in Manhattan and Astoria. Silas Nathaniel Huff, music director of the Astoria Symphony, will be the guest conductor. The Central City Chorus seeks singers with strong sight-singing skills who have an interest in performing a varied repertoire of different style periods. They are an ensemble that often auditions solos from the choral membership in addition to hiring professional soloists, so any singer with a strong solo performance background is especially encouraged to schedule an audition.

Ariel Ramirez

Misa Criolla is written by contemporary (1921- ) Argentine composer, Ariel Ramirez, the Misa Criolla is unique in that it combines the rhythms and traditions of Hispanic America with the traditional religious mass. Composed in 1963, this popular choral work incorporates a variety of Argentine folk styles ranging from the lively dance, carnavalito, for the “Gloria” to the obsessing and almost exasperating rhythm of the chacerera trunca for the “Credo” portion. The “Kyrie” is based on the vidala and baguala rhythms of the Argentine Altiplano while the “Sanctus” features the carnaval cochabambino, a Bolivian folk rhythm. The final “Agnus Dei” and takes on the estilo pampeano – intimate, tender and solemn. First performed by the popular South American quartet, Los Fronterizos, the Misa Criolla received widespread critical acclaim. This famous folk mass is an extraordinary choral work that once again conveys the religious mass through a popular medium of expression.

I love the Misa Criolla :wub_tb:
Thanks Marcel for this post with the 2 video’s of different versions of the beautiful song Gloria!

It must be great to experience the Misa Criolla in a live performance in a church, where the acoustics will make it even more overwhelming…. :smile1_ee:
But even though the performance of the Misa Criolla by a big chorus, such as the Central City Chorus, will be extremely beautiful (and …. I would love to be present at one), I guess I prefer the more modest version of Mercedes Sosa, also because that brings back special memories of our journey in Chili-Bolivia-Peru, every time I listen to it ….. (and I still do that a lot)…. :grin1_ee:

PS …. too bad that the auditions are over….. maybe I would have made a chance as a soprano in the Central City Chorus ….. (regarding my singing-qualities and-experience in the choir at my work once a week) :lol_ee:
