Abstract

This project was to take Ecuadorian national music and transform it for the students at WPI to increase the community’s cultural awareness and make Ecuadorian music more accessible. Three different styles were arranged for a combined instrumental and choral ensemble of WPI students using the skills learned from classes in music theory, arranging and orchestration, performance, and conducting. The result was arrangements of Vasija de Barro, Corazόn Herido and Nuestro Juramento for an ensemble of 31 musicians.
