2013 Latino Music Festival Concert

Finally a cultural event in the burbs. :)

The concert program includes:
Arriaga - Overture to Los Esclavos Felices Overture 2222/2000/timp/str
Villa-Lobos - Choro No. 4 three horns and one trombone
Revueltas - Escenas Infantiles
Gustavo Leone - Moving Lights
Rodrigo - Concierto de Aranjuez –[masked]-str

In my humble opnion, the Concierto de Aranjuez alone is worth attending the concert, it's one of my favorites :) I'm not that familiar with the other pieces, but I'm súre it'll be great.

The concert is going to take place in the Performing Arts Center, (Building R).

Under the direction of Maestro Brian Groner and comprised of professional, community and college musicians, the HSO will perform.

2013 marks the eighth annual Latino Music Festival. This festival is a core program of the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC) and includes concerts throughout the Chicago area, from August to December. The Festival promotes awareness of intellectually significant music from Latin America and Spain, focusing on bringing the best Hispanic music from the present and the past to Chicago area communities. Concerts feature local talent, including several of Chicago’s most prestigious orchestras, ensembles, soloists and talented young professionals.

      Hi Zindya, I'm not sure if the kids would be able to sit thru a classical music concert - I guess it depends on the age. I don't think it would be an issue, but you might want to call them to find out. I hope to see you there.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
