CROSS CULTURAL PROJECTS

From the very establishment of the Songs Unlimited organization, Cross Cultural Projects have been an essential part of our work in promoting the Art of American Song. In fact these projects were precisely the first efforts by Songs Unlimited to achieve its Mission.

SONGS ACROSS THE AMERICAS FESTIVALS

Perhaps the most all-encompassing of our work is our series of Songs Across the Americas Festivals presented in various locations in the Americas hemisphere during selected years.  These Festivals bring together scholars, composers, performers and listeners to promote the Art of American Songs.  The activities provide a “total immersive” experience to promote a deeper and more vivid understanding of the culture of the Americas as reflected in songs composers by it composer from both South and North.

 

For more details about these events please see the entire Program Booklets whose covers are shown on this page for each such Festival mounted to date.

What We Do

 

In February of 2012 Songs Unlimited held important meetings in its La Paz offices and, after considering the tremendous achievements of the past 12 years and determined to maintain its high quality of work throughout the American hemisphere, it has decided to launch its new series of public performances described here in its website and in other promotional literature. Other new efforts are announced that will help immensely to carry out its Mission.

SONGS ACROSS THE AMERICAS ENCOUNTERS

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

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
