2024-2025 Up Close & Personal with the PSO @ Jimmy’s Series

Join clarinetist Santiago Baena Flórez and members of the Portsmouth String section in a night of Colombian Music featuring two suites by composers Jose Revelo Burbano and Alfredo Mejía Vallejo. The suites were commissioned by Baena Flórez in 2016 as part of a grant from the Colombian Ministry of Culture. They reflect on the traditional Andean style of music that is common in Colombia, often referred to as “the land of a thousand rhythms”.
