Songs Across the Americas Encounter

“Voices For Remembrance & Peace”

Arkansas – April 2013

About Our Songs Across the Americas Encounters

Interspersed between the full, multi-dimensional Festivals that we have presented in the past, we will present

a series of SATA ENCOUNTERS – Single Programs that incorporate the essence of our large such

Festivals, i.e.


1. Use of music by living or past composers of the Americas,

2. Joining appropriate music by both SOUTH & NORTH in each program

3. Designing a meaningful juxtaposition of the music segments

4. Inviting key “hosts” or “mentors” to provide background and context for the music


Misa Criolla by Argentinian composer Ariel Ramirez, inspired by a visit by the composer to the Terezin Concentration Camp in Germany in the 1960s.


I Never Saw Another Butterfly by U.S. living composer Lori Laitman to poems by children of the Terezin Camp and presented at the SATA FESTIVAL – Arkansas – May 2006.  An appropriate reprise for this program.


Chichester Psalms by U.S. composer the late Leonard Bernstein commissioned by the Cathedral of Chichester in 1965, and incorporating Psalms that evoke the spirit of peace and unity among brothers.
