Latin in Manhattan – West Side Story and more!
Latin, Jazz, and New York!
On Sunday, November 6th at Moody Performance Hall in Dallas, the Lone Star Wind Orchestra will open the season with Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. Under the direction of Music Director Eugene Migliaro Corporon, the LSWO will perform a Latin-infused concert with works rooted in jazz, many composed in Manhattan, along with music inspired by Hispanic tradition.
The concert will feature two premieres including a movement from Orishas by LSWO’s own Eddie Jimenez, in addition to saxophonist Joey Resendez performing a transcription of Astor Piazzolla’s Escualo never performed in the United States. In addition, the LSWO will perform the music of George Gershwin and Anthony O’Toole.
