When: March, April, June, and July 2015. Currently planning the 2016 season
Where: Santa Marta, Colombia | Paipa, Medellín, and Bogotá in Colombia | Miami, FL | Fort Worth, Dallas, and Houston, TX
Ensemble: Filarmónica Joven de Colombia (FJC website)
During the month of July 2015, I had the privilege to prepare the orchestra for its second tour to the United States of America. This event marked the pilot staging for our 2-year project: To present Stravinsky’s le Sacre du Printemps where the musicians themselves would be the choreography of the ballet. The results are still in what we consider the production process, but it is already a testament to the talent, commitment, and generosity of our players and their conviction with every work of art they can put their hands on.
Please see the whole concert in Bogotá, Teatro León de Greiff.
– The Stravinsky starts at minute 57:50 –
And one more in Fort Worth (TCU, School of Music):
