Join us on a journey from the rhythms of Spain to the melodies of Argentina with this brilliant program featuring Alberto Ginastera’s Variacones concertantes, de Falla's "The Three-Cornered Hat,"and the New Mexico premiere of Mariano Morales’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra featuring Latin GRAMMY® Award-winner Nestor Torres. This collaborative work—composed by three Puerto Rican artists: Mariano Morales, Nestor Torres, and Guillermo Figueroashowcases the flute in a mixture of Western European music traditions.

It is a tribute to the people of Puerto Rico who, although devastated by Hurricane María, are resilient and hopeful. Musical devices, such as the song of the Coquí (autochthonous small toad) and the use of the Bomba rhythm, serve as reminders of the sense of Puerto Rican pride on the island and abroad.

Free pre-concert lecture by Principal Conductor Guillermo Figueroa one hour before the concert.

Tickets are $22 to $80. Half-price tickets available for children ages 6 to 14 with adult purchase (no children under six admitted).
