Join us as we explore a world of kindred rhythms with three festive masterpieces! We’ll open the evening in celebration of Sierra’s Fandangos - boasting traditional Spanish dance forms that are both zesty and colorful. The variations in cadence will lead us into Concerto for Oud by Shaheen, which combines Middle Eastern, Western, and jazz sounds that advances bold gestures as it crosses genre lines with its melodic and rhythmic combinations. Finally, with lively energy we’ll take on the Symphonic Dances of Rachmaninov which carries the listener with shifting harmonies and unbridled energy all the way to its finale.
