“HOME—So Different, So Appealing”: A Performance by Da Camera Young Artists
Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 – Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018
02:00 PM – 02:45 PM
For many U.S. Latino and Latin American composers, the idea of “home” is represented through the folk music of their native countries. This concert near the galleries of the exhibition HOME—So Different, So Appealing features Da Camera Young Artists performing works that reference, overtly or subtly, the folk music of three composers’ homelands—Argentina: Alberto Ginastera (1916–1983); Mexico: Javier Álvarez (born 1956); and Colombia: Diego Vega (born 1968).
