Parranda is a Spanish word suggesting a party, fête, celebration out on the town. It is also the root from which parang music sprang. This lively folkloric music of Trinidad and Venezuela is performed from mid October to mid January, sharing the Christmas spirit and story in a social and entertaining manner.

Faith Amour’s classic Caribbean Christmas carol, “To This World A Stranger” will be performed by the ensemble for the first time in over a decade!

The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, in addition to sharing its seasonal selections, welcomes as guest artist the parang band Maestre & Friends for a truly festive celebration of An Indigo Christmas.
