What a great way to start the weekend—some fun-filled choral singing with refreshments and wine! Coro Austral will provide the entertainment and more in its concert 'Chili Con Carne'.

This concert showcases Latin American and European choral classics drawn from many diverse nations, including Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, Hungary, Sweden, the former Yugoslavia and Israel.

'Chili Con Carne' (Chili with meat) is a traditional Mexican dish interpreted chorally by contemporary Swedish composer Anders Endenroth, whose song has become an international favourite. In naming the concert after this dish, Artistic Director Margot McLaughlin says “this is the epitome of what Coro Austral does—the classical presentation of folk and traditional customs and songs, taking our audience on a journey through Latin America and beyond”.

'¡Come Tu Arroz!' (Eat Your Rice!) is an animated battle between parents and a child who will not eat her rice, devised by Daniel Rojas, an Australian composer of Spanish and Latin American descent. Coro Austral will give the world premiere performance of his arrangement for mixed choir.

Also on the food theme is 'Arroz con Leche' (Rice with Milk), a children’s singing game transformed into a classical fugue by modern Argentinian composer Carlos Guastavino. Added to the mix is Hungarian-born composer Matyas Seiber’s somewhat racy 'Yugoslav Folk-Songs' portraying the joys and frustrations of young love, and the excitement of meeting the bold Hussars!

The audience will also enjoy an arrangement of 'Gracias a la vida' (Thanks to life) by beloved Chilean musician and activist Violeta Parra, a tango by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, and Sephardic and Yemenite folk songs by the German/Israeli composer Yehezkel Braun.

Renowned conductor, pianist and musical educator Anthony Pasquill will accompany the choir.

Since Margot formed Coro Austral in 2010, it has gained an excellent reputation for the skilled and authentic presentation of Spanish and Latin American choral works as well as music from other traditions worldwide.
