Featured selections will include “Navidad Nuestra” by Argentine composer Ariel Ramirez, three Spanish Renaissance carols and two neo-romantic compositions by renowned cellist Pablo Casáls.  The concert is open free to the public.

Classical guitarist Jesse Ramirez and percussionist Jim Bode will accompany the singers, along with Michael Yenny, ASU staff accompanist, on harpsichord.  A reception provided by the Carmelite monks will follow the concert.
