Música Latina: A Symphonic Celebration of the Americas
The Colorado Symphony announces today that its Youth Concert program, Música Latina: A Symphonic Celebration of the Americas will be open to the public on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 9:50 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. as a part of Visit Denver's Arts Week. Come "See the Music" in this symphonic celebration of music from Central and South America. Featuring characteristic Latin rhythms and lush melodies, Música Latina is guaranteed to thrill. From Mexico's Silvestre Revueltas comes Sensemayá about an eerie and ominous snake, to the lush romanticism of Brazilian composer Villa Lobos' Bachianas Brazileires No. 5, the sights and sounds of the southern hemisphere come to life in this colorful one hour program.
All are welcome to attend this season's Youth Concert, Música Latina: A Symphonic Celebration of the Americas, which will entertain and educate students of all ages in Boettcher Concert Hall at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. The complete program will include Alberto Ginastera's "Los trabajadores agricolas" and "Malambo" from Estancia, Heitor Villa-Lobos' Aria from Bachianas Brazileires No. 5, Silvestre Revueltas' Sensemayá, Arturo Marquez's Danzon No. 2 and José Pablo Moncayo's Huapango.
"This season's youth concert program is the most exciting program produced in my twelve years as Director of Education," says Nora Robinson. "Students, teachers and parents will leave Boettcher Concert Hall knowing the important contribution made to the symphonic repertoire by composers from the Americas, having experienced some of the most important and exciting works of the 20th century. Additionally, this concert will broaden students' world-view and present avenues for continued exploration. The Música Latina concert is a bold step for the Colorado Symphony that will have positive impact on future programs."
