The Secrest Artists Series welcomes the Rose Ensemble to perform January 26th, 2012 at 7:30 PM in Wait Chapel.
The Rose Ensemble is a liturgical choir group hailing from Minnesota that will sing songs from Jewish, Christian and Muslim faith traditions. They will be performing selections from the three faiths found in medieval Spain and Portugal.
Our event will be coupled by a week of activities leading up to the concert, “Secrest Accents,” a selection of workshops and talks which amplify the concert experience by illustrating the culture from which the music hails. Upcoming events include a presentation by an interfaith group of Wake students who will follow the footsteps of the Prophets in Israel over winter break. In addition, we will host a discussion about the history of cross-cultural conflict in Southern Spain and the Spanish Alhambra.
Please stay tuned for more information!
