LBCC Benton Center Acoustic Showcase Features Multicultural Singers

Several community members from the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center singing project will perform at the LBCC Benton Center Acoustic Showcase on Friday, Jan. 20 from noon to 1 p.m. in the center’s student lounge, 757 NW Polk Ave., Corvallis.

After receiving a generous grant from the Benton County Cultural Coalition, CMLC created a CD project with songs in different native languages performed by community members. Most of the singers had never recorded before.

The project culminated in the recording of a CD including more than 20 community members singing 22 traditional and original songs in 10 different languages including: Sanskrit and Hindi from India; Sasak from Indonesia; French; Vietnamese; Tagalog from the Philippines; English; Mongolian; Taiwanese; Dari from Afghanistan; and Spanish from Mexico.

The Benton Center Acoustic Showcase is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the LBCC Benton Center at 541-757-8944.
