    Introduction by Kirk Ward:

    new city music conf day two-130I just met Leo, but I am really excited about what he’s bringing to the conference. Leo was born in Concepción, Chile and raised in Panama City, Republic of Panama. He is Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, where he also serves as Director of its Center for Hispanic Studies in The Werner R.H. and Elizabeth Ringger Krause Chair for Hispanic Ministries. Not only is Leo a theologian, but he’s also a double-bass player with the St. Louis Civic Orchestra and plays Latin and jazz bass.

    Leo’s talk is about the growing church in the “global south” and how our liturgical planning and music style might be affected here as a result. Leo also lead our Styles Class on Latin and Caribbean music.

    On Wednesday afternoon in the Skills sessions,  Dr Leo Sanchez blew us all away with his introduction to Latin American and Carribean rhythms.  We are very grateful that Dr Leo transcribed all the music that was played and sent us those files.
