Flamenco! Tango! Fiesta! – Bremerton Symphony & Guests, March 9th

Bremerton Symphony presents Flamenco! Tango! Fiesta! on Saturday, March 9, at 7:30PM at the Admiral Theatre, 515 Pacific Ave, Bremerton. Tickets are $28 for general admission, $15 for students, $10 for youth, with discounts for active military and groups of eight or more. Tickets are available online at bremertonsymphony.org, by phone at 360-373-1722, in person at the Symphony office located in the United Way Building, and at the door. The program is sponsored by Bremerton Symphony Endowment Fund and the season is sponsored by Kitsap Bank. Tickets from the cancelled 2/15/19 jazz concert will be honored at the door.

Maestro Alan Futterman leads a vibrant, Latin music program, featuring his own original composition "Fiesta Mexicana," composer and guitar soloist Hernán Reinaudo with bandoneon, and vocal soloist Mirta Wymerszberg bringing tangos from Buenos Aires with Argentine Tango dancers Kristina Ivanova and Wladimir Pino Olivares. The concert begins with music from Andalucia, then progresses to music from the Iberian Peninsula, demonstrating how it mixed with indigenous sounds from the Americas and transformed into Tango, Milonga, Chacarera, and Mariachi dances. Also included is Saint-Saëns' "Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso" with violin soloist Tabitha Mason, written for the great Spanish violinist Pablo de Sarasate. The short introductory aria is simply a wind-up for the quasi Jota, Pasodoble, and Fandango with wild leaps and runs before a triple-stopping cadenza and a frenetically brilliant coda with fireworks of flying fiddler’s fingers.

Hernán Reinaudo is one of the most outstanding guitarists of the new generation of tango musicians that has emerged over the last years in Argentina. Reinaudo worked on more than 40 album productions. With Nicolas Enrich on bandoneon, he participated in the International Expo 2010 Shanghai (China) and the International Expo 2012 in Yeosu (Korea). He toured the U.S. since 2014, offering concerts, workshops, and classes at Dartmouth College, Cabrillo College, Notre Dame, and University of Illinois at Chicago, among others.

Mirta Wymerszberg leads Sol de Noche, a band offering repertoire focused on Argentine Tango and traditional dance music from South America, including ballads, boleros, valses, milongas, candombes, son and rumbas. Wymerszberg also performs as a solo artist on the bandoneon, the signature instrument of tango music, bringing a wide repertoire from Bach to Tango. She is also an accomplished flutist and vocalist. A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Wymerszberg received her musical education at the Municipal Conservatory of Music. She appears regularly in Seattle with "Sol de Noche," as well as singing flamenco repertoire with "Cuadro Azahares," "La Peña Flamenca de Seattle," and as a guest artist in a diversity of Latin projects. She produced three children shows for bilingual and Spanish speaking audiences, integrating live music, puppets, tango and folk dance, and storytelling from a cultural and educational perspective.
