Exceptional young musicians from the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela come together for a chamber concert in the relaxed setting of The Hub.
The Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela (formerly the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra) is one of Latin America’s greatest orchestras. Under its Music Director Gustavo Dudamel it tours to the world’s leading concert venues and festivals. Its members have received their training through Venezuela’s music education programme El Sistema.
In this concert, a chamber ensemble of the orchestra’s talented musicians – aged from 18 to 25 – perform classical music from the Americas. The programme explores the inspirations of both European and local traditions on a range of Central and South American composers. The orchestra’s recordings and performances of Latin American orchestral music have been praised for their ‘infectious, hardcore Latin spirit’ (Gramophone) and deemed ‘top class’ (The Guardian). This chamber concert promises to be no less exciting.
