The close relationship between the drummer and dancer is explored using examples ranging from traditional African dance to hip-hop. The concept of art forms (drumming and dancing) as a means of communication is introduced. Latin American dances such as the Cuban Cha-Cha, the Brazilian Samba and the Merengue from Santo Domingo accompanied by typical percussion instruments reinforce the African connection. This program offers many opportunities for group participation culminating in a Conga line involving the whole audience.

LiMarzi, John BRAHMS - The Putnam Chorale Music
The Putnam Chorale, directed by Douglas Anderson, is pleased to present our winter program, A German Requiem, by Johannes Brahms. This piece is a large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, and a soprano and a baritone soloist. Composed between 1865 and 1868, this Requiem in the German language is thought to be a tribute to Brahms's mother who died in February 1865. Brahms assembled the libretto himself. In contrast to the traditional Roman Catholic Requiem Mass, which employs a standardized text in Latin, the text is derived from the German Luther Bible. Although the subject, being a Requiem, is grim, the MUSIC IS BEAUTIFUL and will surely delight any listener. Join us on Sunday December 2, 2012 at 3 pm at the Temple Beth Elohim, 31 Mt. Ebo Rd, North, Brewster, NY.$15, $12 Sr. and Student; Under 12 FREE. You can find more information on our website, www.putnamchorale.org, or by telephone at 845-279-7265.
