Canto General is an incredible story of South American life. Written in 1950 by Pablo Neruda, it went through a difficult journey over decades of time before it could finally be heard. Theodorakis wrote the music to accompany the piece, and added one extra to the 13 pieces in honor of Neruda, who had passed away. The story of the piece, and the story it tells, is both astounding and miraculous. Now it has finally journeyed from conception to performance near luxury Montecito homes for you to experience and enjoy. Visit sbmasterchorale.com to learn more and purchase tickets.
