Cuban ensemble to perform in Triangle
Coro Entrevoces, an internationally celebrated Cuban choir, makes a stop in Durham on Monday, June 15, on its U.S. concert tour.
Known for its interpretation of diverse styles from Spanish Renaissance polyphony to contemporary Cuban and Latin-American folksongs, Entrevoces is also one of the premier interpreters of Cuban vocal works both traditional and modern. Under the direction of Professor Digna Guerra, the ensemble has produced several award-winning CDs and continues to represent a high standard of Cuban and Latin-American choral music around the world.
Entrevoces’ U.S .tour is organized by Classical Movements, Inc., which has worked in Cuba since 1995, sending numerous musical ensembles to Cuba and bringing several Cuban choirs to the USA. The choir’s stopover in Durham, en route to Yale University, is being arranged through the Triangle Cuba Choral Exchange (TCCX), a choir of singers from the Triangle area, which toured Cuba in June 2014. The Triangle Choral Exchange, established by Nancy Clapp-Channing and directed by Professor Rodney Wynkoop, director of Chapel Music at Duke, supports international understanding through collaborations with choirs in other countries and, when possible, hosting choirs from these countries in the U.S.
Monday’s performance begins at 7:30 p.m., at McMannen United Methodist Church, 4102 Neal Road, Durham. Suggested donation at the door is $10; admission is free for students. Donations will help pay for hosting the visiting choir.
