Happenings: Encore Series

Encore features ‘orchestra of voices,’
bilingual one-act play this fall

The Encore University Arts Series at Texas State is featuring two performances this fall: Chanticleer, An Orchestra of Voices, and the play Las Nuevas Tamaleras.

Chanticleer has won Grammy Awards for a repertoire that spans 10 centuries, ranging from Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony and Romantic art song to contemporary music, jazz, spirituals and world music. The ensemble will perform Oct. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in Evans Auditorium.

In November, the series features Las Nuevas Tamaleras (The New Tamale Makers), which captures three Chicanas in a comical attempt at making tamales for the first time. It will be presented Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Evans Auditorium.

Tickets are $15 for reserved seats, $10 for general admission and $5 for students, either at the Encore Series website or at the door. The Encore Series is coordinated through the College of Fine Arts & Communication.
