Martín Palmeri’s MisaTango

A celebration of the sounds of Latin America

St. Francis of Assisi, 20 Fairmont Avenue, Ottawa

The final concert of the season on June 11 will feature the works of Latin American composers, including MisaTango by Martín Palmeri, a setting of the mass that exploits the intensely emotional heart of the distinctly Argentine musical form. Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Julie Nesrallah will be the soloist accompanied by an authentic ensemble of strings, piano, and bandoneón. An original commission for the Choral Society by Cuban-Canadian composer Alondra Vega-Zaldivar will also be performed, along with works by Alberto Ginastera, Carlos Guastavino, and Violeta Parra.
