I remember one of the coolest parts of the school year was learning about the holidays as they were celebrated in other cultures. From the German "O Tannenbaum" and "Stile Nacht" to Le Réveillon, a celebratory feast following midnight mass in France, the customs and songs had me enthralled. DFW International celebrates cultural differences just about every day, but there's one event the organization hosts that is especially festive and, for world studies and music fanatics out there, a can't-miss. It's Navidad Latinoamericana, the Latin American Christmas Concert. The annual event will feature 11 ensembles from Argentina, Chile, Honduras, Paraguay, Venezuela and other South American countries, as well as Spain. Enjoy villancicos, aguinaldos and posadas 7:30 p.m. Friday at Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe, 2201 Ross Ave. Admission is $5. Children 10 and younger are admitted for free.
