Join us to sing this fun and uplifting arrangement of a traditional Acadian song, expertly arranged by Acadian scholar, composer, conductor, and singer, Dr Jeanette Gallant!
Acadian music is some of the most ear-catching and delightful music heard anywhere in the world. With a rich history stretching back hundreds of years from the East coast of North America to its ancient European roots, the tunes, instruments, and rhythm dances heard in Acadian music are everywhere evident in Jeanette Gallant's arrangement.
Project Dates: Feb 10-Mar 2, 2024. Recordings due March 24.
