Cuéntame | Tell Me Your Story

Posted · Add Comment

We’re delighted to introduce our 2018–2019 season, Cuéntame, which is Spanish for “tell me your story.” We invite you to hear the magnificent, heartbreaking, and victorious stories of those who have come from afar to make their lives here in America. Each concert will feature a special focus on the music and culture of the Hispanic world and take you on a journey that will help us all answer the question: Where do I come from?

2018-2019 Sing Me a Story artNote: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Laura Gentry will replace Dhani Jones as our narrator, who developed a late-hour scheduling conflict.

We begin with this year’s Sing Me a Story holiday concert on December 8 at the Procter & Gamble Hall. With special guests Dhani Jones and Kathy Wade, the choirs will present “The Night Before Christmas / Era la Vispera de Navidad” in an English/Spanish format. This family-friendly concert is quickly becoming an annual tradition.

Lively, uplifting music will help tell the meaningful stories of families, of travel, and of the building of the pluralistic culture in which we live today.

We look forward to sharing our stories and learning yours this year. Join us!
