Viva la Musica!
September 29, 2012
The Sacramento Philharmonic's 16th season opens with Viva la Musica! a concert celebrating the Latin music influence. A rhythmically charged celebration of our region’s spirit--and a virtual “who’s who” of internationally-recognized and award-winning composers with Latin American roots or ties. Music from Peru, Uruguay, Mexico, Brasil, Argentina, Spain, and the US will be featured.
Come early and enjoy “festival activities” in the theater lobby and celebrate the rich cultural traditions and connections of our Central and South American communities. The talents of regional musicians, dancers, and artists from various cultural organizations will be showcased, including Institute Mazatlan Bellas Artes (IMBA), Brazilian Center for Cultural Exchange of Sacramento, La Raza Galeria Posada, and Firehouse 5 Dance Studio. These activities are free of charge and the public is invited to participate, whether or not they are attending the paid concert that follows.
Hear Jimmy Lopez’ Fiesta; Daniel Binelli’s Homenaje al Tango with guest artists Juan Pablo Jofre– bandoneón and Polly Ferman–piano; West Coast Premiere of Caribeña (Caribbean Op.105) by Miguel del Aguila; Estampas Mexicanas by José Elizondo; Camargo Guarneri’s Danza Negra and Danza Brasileira; Sones de Mariachi by Blas Galindo; Three Cornered Hat Suite 2 by Manuel de Falla; and more.
