Maestro Peter Bay presents ¡Andalusia!, a dramatic exploration of the music of southern Spain.
Featured on the concert is Impulso: Symphonic Dances for Marimba, Flamenco Guitar, and Dancer by Henry Flurry and Chris Jácome. Maria Flurry solos on marimba, Chris B. Jácome on flamenco guitar, and Lena Jácome as flamenco dancer. Impulso melds the flamenco and classical traditions into an exciting journey of passion, tragedy, and joy.
Also on the concert is Manuel de Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat Suite No. 1 and Georges Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 1, two suites derived from stage works set in Andalusia, Spain.
As an added treat, the concert will open with a suite of miniature works for orchestra that were group-composed by area public-school classes, as part of Arizona Philharmonic’s outreach into schools.
