The concert will culminate with “Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest,” arranged by Conrad Susa for the choir, marimba, harp, and classical guitar. These are songs from various regions in Spain, and other Spanish-speaking countries such as Mexico and Puerto Rico. The concert will also include Spanish dance, a children’s choir, and special guests Ukuleles of Tahoe.
