My Va-Latin-tine

CANCELLED

This Valentine’s Day weekend be transported by the GSC to sensuous music in a Latin vein! Latin Grammy award winning, Seattle-based Uruguayan-American composer Miguel del Águila ’s rousing and rhythmic Malambo for bassoon and strings takes center stage with our principal bassoonist, Alicia Mclean-Brischli, as  soloist. We invite you to sway to the music of popular Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. And what could be more romantic than music from Bizet’s popular opera Carmen, including familiar favorite selections like Habanera, Séguedille, The Toreador Song and many more? And we may just have a few more amorous tricks up our sleeve for you!
