Minnesota Orchestra Sommerfest

July 19 @ 8:00 pm

Featuring Argentine tango, Afro-Brazilian capoeira, Mexican huapango and contemporary works influenced by the spirit of salsa, bossa nova and rumba, Música Juntos (Music Together) is a jubilant festival that celebrates the musical gifts of Latin America, from past to present.

Including works by “King of the Tango” Astor Piazzolla, contemporary composers Osvaldo Golijov and Esteban Benzecry and more, this tango-inspired performance celebrates and pays homage to one of Argentina’s greatest musical traditions. Karen Gomyo also returns to Orchestra Hall for a stunning rendition of The Four Seasons in Buenos Aires.
