Winner of the 2014 Area 3 Composition Contest, Sympatico I and II will mesmerize
your audiences with driving Latin rhythms, sultry melodies and optional percussion.
Ringers will be "sympatico" when they perform this dual-score piece, sharing a common
connection and understanding with each other. Choir I and Choir II are stand-alone
pieces: different in range, level and even layout - yet they fit together like a puzzle and
enhance each other when performed together.
Basic percussion patterns are offered. Feel free to ad lib and add more instruments.
