For their Winter 2018 concert on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church (1500 State St.), the UCSB Chamber Choir, under the direction of Grey Brothers, and the UCSB Women’s Chorus, under the direction of Tyler Reece, will perform music by Latin American composers. The Women's Chorus program will feature two movements of the "Miss São Sebastião" (Mass in Honor of St. Sebastian) by Heitor Villa-Lobos and will include arrangements of folk and popular songs by Oscar Escalada and Alberto Grau. The Chamber Choir will begin with the charming "Solfa de Pedro" by Mexican Baroque composer Manuel de Sumaya and will close with three movements of Ariel Ramírez's ever popular "Misa Criolla," a piece based on the rhythms and melodies of Argentina, accompanied by percussion, guitar, bass, and piano. The centerpiece of the Chamber Choir program will be Alberto Ginastera's stunning "Lamentaciones de Jeremias Propheta" (Lamentations of Jeremiah the Prophet).
About the UCSB Choirs
The UCSB Chamber Choir is an outstanding ensemble of music majors and non-majors, comprised of 36 of the best singers from the UCSB campus. Specializing in virtuosic a cappella choral music from the Renaissance to the 20th century, the group has collaborated with the Ericson Chamber Choir from Stockholm, Madrigalchor Kiel from Germany, the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, the Santa Barbara Symphony, and the Asia-America Symphony Orchestra in Los Angeles. The Chamber Choir undertakes frequent international concert tours, and has twelve CD recordings to its credit. 
A dynamic group of music majors and non-majors, the UCSB Women’s Chorus draws its membership from some 20 departments across campus. The Women’s Chorus performs the main repertoire for women's voices, including a cappella and accompanied works, often with unusual combinations of instruments. The Women’s Chorus has been featured on four CD recordings with the UCSB Chamber Choir, including Carl Orff’s "Carmina Burana".
