Concert’ina will be a fabulous celebration of Latin rhythms. A delicious salsa of harmonies, conjuring smoky milongas in flamboyant Buenos Aires. Fiery tangos meet staccato Glorias with a sprinkling of sultry ‘Strings’.
Santiago Quartet, a stunning group of strings specialising in Argentinian and Latin American music are joined by Julian Rowlands, renowned Bandoneon player, David Coram on piano and the Salisbury Community Choir: artfully brought together by conductor, Jeremy Backhouse.
From Palmeri's striking Mass – Misa a Buenos Aires ‘Misa Tango’ and Piazolla’s Las Cuatro Estaciones Portenas (Four Seasons) to extracts from Morricone’s ‘The Mission’ and a lighthearted ‘Guantanamera’.
The concert is supporting Mind, the leading mental health charity.
