Music in the Rotunda

“Imagining the New World”

UCLA Early Music Ensemble

Saturday, Mar 7, 2015 – 8:00pm to 9:30pm

This program will explore repertoire from interactions between North and South American Native Americans and Europeans during the colonial era. Included will be the first transcriptions and settings of Native American music in existence, period indigenous Christian liturgical music by indigenous composers, and European baroque operas with Native American characters and themes. The UCLA Early Music Ensemble, under the direction of Elisabeth Le Guin and Ryan Koons, will be singing and playing music in Guarani, Mi’kmaq, and Quechua, in addition to French, Latin, and Spanish. A unique concert not to be missed!
