SACRA/PROFANA Will Present MUSIC AS SOCIAL CHANGE
The eclectic San Diego vocal performance ensemble SACRA/PROFANA has gained acclaim as a genre-defying ensemble breaking down the barriers between pop, classical, and contemporary music. In that tradition the group presents MUSIC AS SOCIAL CHANGE, a concert that will feature arrangements of socially aware pop music from the 1960s to the present day, as well as choral music that comments on the issues of our times.

"'Music as Social Change' is an acknowledgement of the role that music has and continues to play in social movements in American culture," says Artistic Director Juan Carlos Acosta. "Building on our concerts featuring the music of Prince and Carole King, this concert will feature arrangements and covers of iconic protest songs from the 1940s to the present day, as well as new choral compositions by living composers."
The members of SACRA/PROFANA will stretch out as arrangers and instrumentalists in pop songs including "Imagine," "True Colors," "RESPECT," "Masters of War" and more. The audience will be invited to join in singing a number of classic songs from a number of movements, and then will be invited to get in touch with partner organizations who will have representatives present.
