Latin America Gala
Enrico Chapela’s orchestral composition Ínguesu, is a musical description of one of Mexico’s proudest sporting moments – defeating Brazil in the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup soccer match. It also highlights the theme of Queensland Symphony Orchestra‘s night with music inspired by Brazil and Mexico. You’ll hear music from Latin American composers and composers inspired by Latin America in one inspiring night. In the most exciting Queensland Symphony Orchestra concert in memory, resident music director Alondra de la Parra conducted a never-to-be-forgotten performance that was bursting at the seams with vitality, giving the smiling players a white-knuckle ride that looked as enjoyable as it was terrifying.
