In Shadow Of Berlin In Lights, New York City's The Philharmonic Orchestra Of The Americas To Perform Free 6 PM Concert At Kennedy Center Concert Hall


Wednesday, November 28, 2007 6 PM IN THE KENNEDY CENTER CONCERT HALL *FREE*

The Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas shares the music of Latin America with original compositions by Latin American composers. Presented in cooperation with the Mexican Cultural Institute.

'Under the artistic vision of its Music Director, Alondra de la Parra, The Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas embraces the concept of a contemporary ensemble that stresses the importance of high-caliber music from Latin America and the rest of the world. The orchestra is a laboratory for artistic expression, embracing a responsibility to support promising young performers, composers, instrumentalists, conductors and all kinds of diverse artists from Latin America and beyond. The orchestra strives to be an integral part of a twentieth-first century New York City, eager to share a heritage of passion for the music with a broad public. Most importantly, the POA recognizs the need for breaking the boundaries and stereotypes of the traditional concert format out of the necessity to bring symphonic music back to be a relevant part of people’s life.'

American classical music champion -- and no friend of reactionary WETA/WGMS-FM in the Nation's Capital -- Alondra de la Parra.

Old World Conductor and Humanist Kurt Masur called New World Conductor and Humanist Alondra de la Parra “a highly knowledgeable conductor who carries the will and intentions of the composers with great responsibility”.

Perhaps Condelizza Rice will take a break from the Annapolis Middle East Summit and invite Bush, Olmert, Abbas, and others to join her in attending this free concert of European and American classical music at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts?
