The Amazonia Vocal Ensemble, based in Miami, visited Naples on Saturday, February 14, 2009! What a delight to hear this new choir of Latin American singers performing choral music from Latin America right here in Naples! Click here to listen to a sample now!
From the beauty of the earliest music of the Americas to modern-day Latin America scores, Amazonia will keep your feet and heart in rhythmic pulse to this amazing choral music! Their hour-long program will include music from Nicaragua, Cuba, Aruba, Trinidad, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Brazil, and Spain. What a choral feast! Don’t miss it!
Amazonia’s director, Cristian Grases, was a protogé of Maria Guinand and Alberto Grau, who founded the “El Sistema” of choral music in Venezuela. Cristian and his family now live in Miami, where he is finishing his doctorate in choral conducting at the Univ. of Miami.
