'Living Legends' concert March 24 celebrates seasons of life

The School of Music will present "Living Legends in Seasons" featuring traditional song and dance from the Latin American, Native American and Polynesian cultures Thursday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets are $10 with $2 off with BYU or student ID. For tickets, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 378-4322 or at performances.byu.edu.

The Living Legends program will open with a Native American piece portraying the sacredness of the eagle and the Yakima swan. The program will then give the audience a glimpse into the cultures of Ecuador, Hawaii, Samoa, Guatemala, Paraguay, Tahiti, Columbia, Tonga and New Zealand.

"The theme is the seasons of a civilization told through their dance and music, which have been handed down through the generations. It begins with the season of promise and continues through seasons of plenty, prosperity, pride, war and rebirth," said Janielle Christensen, Living Legends artistic director.

"Although we tell the story of the Latin American, Native American and Polynesian cultures, it is a story that is universal and applies to any civilization," she said.
