Tony Sala has said, “Just as American people are not of
one race or religion, American music is not influenced by just
one sound. It is a melting pot of many sounds. We can hear a
hint of the great European composers, the beat of African and
Caribbean rhythms, the rhythms of Mexico and many other cultures
in our national repertoire. Reaching deeply into the fertile
soil of world culture, America has enriched that soil.”
|Brothers in Harmony,
led by director Jack Pinto, performed A Concert for Peace, in
September at the Friends Center original Philadelphia Meetinghouse.
This event was to raise funds for the peace, health, and education
efforts of the Madrugadores Rotary Club. Music by this men's
chorus from Hamilton Square, NJ included "When I Lift Up
My Head," "With A Little Help from My Friends,"
"Imagine" and "God Bless the USA, as well as
some spirited selections by four physicians, the Docapella Quartet.
The sound in this extraordinary historic space was truly superb!
