Rhythmic songs from Latin America, Czechoslovakia, Mexico and America will shake the walls as students from UVA welcome Earth Day. Gentle music set to texts of Alfred Lord Tennyson, e.e. cummings and Robert Burns bring peace and comfort. Familiar music with contemporary settings provides freshness and beauty. Unusual and familiar instruments as well as body percussion offer variety. Enjoy the diverse ways the Virginia Women's Chorus will usher in Earth Day.
