Viva México, Vive les Romantiques
Join us for the opening of our fall season in the First Baptist Church Medford! This program consists of two contrasting halves, with the first half celebrating Mexican Independence day with contrasting and exciting works by four different living Mexican composers: Jose Elizondo, Arturo Marquez, Nubia Melina Jaime Donjuan, and Abraham Gomez. In the second half we switch to something completely different with the beloved Violin Sonata by French Romantic composer Cesar Franck, with violinist Francine Trester, and we conclude with a quick preview of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, both arranged by the Calefax Quintet. Admission free.
