Our December concert will warm your holiday season, starting with the stunning, rhythmic Misa Tango by contemporary Argentinian composer Martín Palmeri, selections from Gabriel Fauré, Astor Piazzolla, plus holiday music from unexpected sources — French carols, African-American spirituals, and more!
We’re thrilled to welcome TWO 2018 Latin Grammy Award winners as featured soloists — Pedro Giraudo on bass and Rodolfo Zanetti on bandoneón. Also featured is mezzo-soprano tango specialist Malena Dayen, who last appeared with the chorale in 2016.
The FCC also welcomes guest conductor Eduardo Notrica. Mr. Notrica borrows the baton from FCC music director David Rosenmeyer, who takes over on piano for the Misatango.
