January 27, 2019 3 pm  – A Taste of Spain

featuring members of the Al Andalus Ensemble

Join us for our musical portrait of Spain, a country with a rich tradition of music, dance and drama, that embraces diversity of cultures. Salem Symphonic Winds will feature members of the Al Andalus Ensemble in song and dance. Our featured work, Duende by Luis Serrano Alarcón, celebrates Spanish society and its many traditions. The term Duende is used in flamenco to refer to this state of inspiration and supreme perceptiveness, almost magic, which is only reached by the performer on few occasions. This set of symphonic preludes is a fusion of classical flamenco, jazz and Latin music in celebration of the cultures of Spain. Other works included on the program will be La Boda De Luis Alonzo by Jerónimo Giménez, Arabesque by Samuel Hazo and Roma by Valerie Coleman.

This project made possible, in part, by funding from the Marion County Cultural Corporation.

The Salem Concert Band receives support from the Oregon Arts Commission,
a state agency funded by the State of Oregon.
