Cinco de Mayo
Sunday, may 5, 2019, 3 p.M.
First United Methodist Church - Albuquerque
In the season-closing concert, Maestro Roger Melone conducts the Chorus and NMPhil musicians performing Emma Lou Diemer's joyful Three Madrigals with pianist Daniel Cummings, Fanny Mendelssohn's wondrous Gartenlieder and Ariel Ramírez's spellbinding Misa Criolla. Performed twice at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, this much admired mass will elicit wonder and happiness with its rhythms and musical influences of traditional South American folk music. Ramírez, highly respected composer born in Santa Fe, Argentina, wrote this very special work in 1963-64.
