From Cuba to Argentina, the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra criss-crosses the globe with music from and inspired by Latin America.  Join us for a scintillating concert of passionate tangos, blazing mambos and pulsating congas. The symphony’s all-Latin program includes such favorites as Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, Bernstein’s West Side Story, and dynamic orchestral works from contemporary Latin composers, including Conga del Fuego and Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez, Fandangos by Roberto Sierra, and Three Latin American Dances by Gabriela Lena Frank. Soprano, Amy Cofield joins the orchestra to sing Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos’s gorgeous Aria from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5.   The playful rhythms, familiar dance tunes and fiery passion of these works will transport you to Latin America in this snappy, sizzling program.
