Enjoy the Andean culture with Inca Son at Wisconsin Lutheran

October 19, 2006

MILWAUKEE - Inca Son performs music from the Andes of Peru and all of Latin America in the Schwan Concert Hall at Wisconsin Lutheran College Tuesday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m. The group's concerts include traditional songs, which the musicians rearrange to create a unique style, as well as original compositions. The instruments that are used, with the exception of the stringed instruments, are made by the musicians themselves.

After contributing music to the PBS special "Columbus and the Age of Discovery," a series that aired world-wide, Inca Son launched its touring career at The International Day of the World's Indigenous People event at the United Nations in New York in 1994. Since that time, Inca Son has performed at international festivals in all the United States, Canada, Europe and Peru. They have given concerts for non-profit organizations including Amnesty International and Walk for AIDS. They have also performed in numerous venues including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Carnegie Hall, and the Lincoln Center in New York.

The Inca Son performance is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Arts Board. The Schwan Concert Hall is located in the college's Center for Arts and Performance at 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave. Tickets are $23 general, $21 seniors and $8 students. To purchase tickets, call the WLC box office at (414) 443-8802 or visit wlc.edu/arts.

Since 1996, the Wisconsin Lutheran College Center for Arts and Performance has been providing a comprehensive program of performing and visual arts and educational and community events for students and the people of southeastern Wisconsin.
