Americas3 is a musical/theatrical, scripted show in 7 languages about how migration, suffering, work, love, sense of place, and celebration are expressed in song and literature throughout the Americas.  The short video above will give you a better sense of the show.

Please scroll down to see the table listing the sequence of the show in order - click on the song title to hear a given song. Under each instrument heading, the songs on which you play will be indicated by the song number.  Charts will be sent to you via email.   On some songs you are asked to sing a chorus.  If at all possible, please do!  It adds to the sense of community the production is meant to convey.

The sequence of the show gets played back-to-back.  It is very important that the flow of the show never be interrupted.  Our musical director, Ed,  will always count you in.
