Fall Classical:
Latin Fire

Feat. Nicholas Ciraldo, Guitar & Luvada Harrison, Soprano

Saturday, October 29 2022

"Somewhere inside a tavern in Spain, people dance beneath a brass lamp hung from the ceiling. Cheers erupt as the female dancer leaps onto the long table, her steps becoming more and more animated, the colors of her ruffled skirt slicing rhythmically through the air."
 

This is the scene portrayed in the program book on opening night of Ravel’s Bolero at the Paris Opéra on November 22, 1928. Celebrating the vibrant beauty of the Latin musical culture, Latin Fire paints a vivid picture of this diverse history and its impact on the evolution of music. Award-winning classical guitarist Nicholas Ciraldo and chartreuse Luvada Harrison showcase the passion of Latin music with the lush harmonies and lively rhythms of Spanish traditions.

Selections include:

Chabrier     Espana   
Rodrigo      Concierto de Aranjuez
De Falla      Three-Cornered Hat, Suites 1 and 2 
Ravel           Bolero    

Meridian sounds fiery!

This concert will take place at the MSU Riley Center and will begin at 7PM.
