The Caneille Regional Development Fund presents Voyage to Haiti, featuring Haitian and French classical, folk, and voodoo music performed by the Crossing Borders String Quartet. The music will include string quartets by French composer Darius Milhaud, by Haitian composer Julio Racine, and string quartet arrangements of Haitian folk and voodoo music. The concert marks the Wisconsin debut of the Crossing Borders Quartet. The quartet members’ 2010 performance of Haitian and West African music was broadcast on Chicago’s WFMT classical radio station and lauded by Chicago Sun Times music critic Andrew Patner as “deeply moving and inspiring.” Attendance is free, however, free-will donations and silent auction proceeds will benefit the Caneille Regional Development Fund. This concert is brought to Lawrence University by the Students’ War Against Hunger and Poverty (SWAHP).
