Canto General
Seattle Peace Chorus' 2012 Spring concerts will be encore performances of Canto General.  This is the epic work for which poet Pablo Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature.  The Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis (who composed the music for Zorba the Greek) loved the poetry so much when he met Neruda that he set it to music.  It is an incredible and glorious piece with exciting rhythms and choral parts.  Fred West, Music Director, is one of the 3 or 4 conductors in the United States who has directed it.  The Chorus has presented it twice before, the last time in 2005 for the 100th year anniversary of Neruda's birth.  2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the military coup in Chile and the Chorus will be performing it twice in Seattle this spring and they also hope to perform it in Santiago, Chile, in August.
