Join us to hear and experience percussion instruments from the region of Latin America. Enjoy a Samba from Brazil, Mambo from Cuba, and a Soca from Trinidad! See how all these percussion instruments have a lot in common, and learn about their origin. (with the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra)
French language, technique, music, costuming, and style are all still prevalent in the beautiful and refined art form of Ballet. The Makaroff Youth Ballet will bring this tradition to life by guiding the audience through a typical ballet class and connecting us to its French heritage.
Join the Appleton Boychoir as they explore the traditional music and culture of Mexico. Students will learn the history of La Cucaracha as they sing the familiar song from the Mexican Revolution period (1910-1920). Everyone will recognize the Mexican folksong made famous by Ritchie Valens in the late 1950s…La Bamba! The Piῆata is broken at most family celebrations…but did you know there is a song that children sing as they play? Don’t miss Destination Mexico with the Appleton Boychoir!
Explore the continent of Africa through songs, stories and sounds to discover just how diverse its many cultures are. Join newVoices as we explore a wide range of rhythms through percussion and song!

Don't miss your chance to sing along with newVoices!
