Join us in celebrating Hispanic Heritage month! If there’s one thing to be learned about classical music from Latin America, it’s that there’s much more than many of us have had the chance to hear. Explore some of its greatest composers in a program with highlights such as Moncayo’s Huapango and Eugenio Toussaint’s Suite de Mambos de Perez Prado. We dare you to leave without a smile.
