Enjoy an evening of Latin American music full of swagger and drama. Maria Guinand, the noted Venezuelan choral conductor, will be conducting Osvaldo Golijov's Oceana, inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda, and Heitor Villa-Lobos' Chôros No. 10, based on Brazilian street musicians. The concert will also feature the West Coast premiere of Intrada 1631, based on 17th-century Peruvian chants, and Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera's Malambo. The night offers a veritable tour of Latin America through its various music styles, all of which are invigorating and inspiring. Learn More

The pre-show lecture was excellent, especially for a classical music aficianado. It's worth showing up an hour early to gain insight into the composer, the piece, and the overall theme and how each one fits together to complement the whole.
I took my mother, who was in from out of town, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Steven Shick is a passionate, masterful conductor who brings out the best in a volunteer group of dedicated musicians from all walks of life.
If you don't want to pay top dollar to see the SD Symphony, or if you just can't get enough of the classic symphonies, you won't be disappointed in the LJS.
