The University Chorale, in collaboration with the Lorena Guillén Tango Ensemble, highlights Argentine tango and its crossed-path with Jewish culture: tango in the pre-WWI Europe, in the ghettos, in the early 20th century New York City and Buenos Aires Yiddish theater and through compositions of the first generation of Argentine-Jewish composers.
The mission of the UNCG Choirs is dedicated to the teaching, performance, study and cultivation of choral music of the highest quality. We believe that the UNCG Choirs are a serious and distinctive medium of musical expression, of vital service and importance to its members and to UNCG. Through ensemble performance, we strive to create and environment of trust, communication, and expressive freedom, to present outstanding performances throughout the year, and to enhance the institutional sprit and character of UNCG. To music as an art and a profession, the UNCG Choirs seek to bring increasing artistry, understanding, and respect by efforts within our own immediate sphere and by providing leadership and sponsorship to school choral programs and through cooperation with all other agencies pursuing similar musical goals.
