October 5-6, 2013, The Sonoran Desert Chorale opens its 20th Season, VoXX, with celebration and reflection. The Joyful Journey of these twenty years is reflected in a piece of the same name written for the Chorale by noted American composer, René Clausen. This beautiful work premieres at the first concert of the season, World Voices. This "travelcade" of vocal sounds will take audiences to far-off places from the comfort of their seats. Hear the Chorale as it performs a mix of multi-cultural pieces of many styles from around the globe, among them Vieniki, Desh, Jai Ho!, Soweto, as well as others from Africa, Asia and our neighbors to the north and south.
