     Schola Cantorum on Hudson (SCH) presents its annual Ethnic Celebration Series concert entitled "American Melting Pot." The program highlights
     the works of composers who have immigrated to the United States. Dr. Deborah Simpkin King, the ensemble’s artistic director and founder, will
     conduct. Dr. King comments, "A uniquely American musical voice emerged from the influences of many nations. This program embodies the
     international flare and vitality of this great American melting pot. The hope and optimism that continue to bring immigrants to our shores pervade 
     the music in this concert.”

     The program showcases this season's Cantorum Young Singers (CYS), the Wagner College Choir,
     directed by Dr. Roger Wesby. SCH and CYS will perform choral works representing many distinctly
     American genres—Appalachian folk songs, spirituals, jazz, musical theater—and many immigrant 
     languages—English, Latin, Greek, Spanish, Samoan, and Shona—a Bantu language spoken in
     Zimbabwe.
 
     Among the popular favorites are “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” “Down in the River to Pray,”
     “Blue Skies,” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So.” This season’s featured composer, Dr. Wesby will guest 
     conduct a number of pieces, and his arrangements such as “Lost in the Stars,” “Uyai Mose”
     (“Come All Ye People”), and “Sweet Cane” (“Caña Dulce”), will figure prominently amid the works of
     luminary composers Carol Barnett, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Max Lifchitz, 
     Sheena Phillips, and Kurt Weill.
