The Choral Society concludes its season with a festival of music that will be featured in its summer 2018 tour to Cuba, including unpublished arrangements from the repertoire of the two leading Cuban choirs with whom we’ll be sharing concerts during the tour. We will be accompanied by an ensemble led by the incomparable Rolando Morales-Matos, a sought-after Latin musician who has served for years as the lead percussionist and assistant conductor for The Lion King on Broadway. Also appearing with the Choral Society will be dancers from the Justine Time to Dance studio.
