Enjoy an international theme for these concerts with programming to include Taiko from Japan (via an American composer), a stop in Baroque Italy with Vivaldi, a piece by Mexican composer Carolo Chavez that was commissioned by Clare Boothe Luce, down under to Australia with Peter Sculthorpe’s Jabiru Dreaming which was a gift to France based on 3 aboriginal melodies that were collected by a member of a French exploratory expedition in 1802. The concert ends with the well-known piece Spain by Chick Corea.
