Atlanta Symphony Orchestra ¡Musica Ardiente! Week 1
On May 27, 2009, the Atlanta Symphony launched week one of its ¡Musica Ardiente! Festival, a celebration of the music, dance, and imagery of Latin America. The ¡Música Ardiente! Festival was inspired by the concept and programs of conductor and curator Miguel Harth- Bedoyas Caminos del Inka Project. The first week of this two-week celebration, presented by CNN en Español, featured two programs. The first program, May 28 and 30, 2009, entitled Caminos del Inka, shared the rich musical traditions of the Inca Trail. The second program featured a special presentation on May 29, 2009 of Osvaldo Golijovs cello concerto, Azul, performed by Yo-Yo Ma.
The festival also highlighted a series of free events thanks to valuable partnerships with musicians, composers, organizations, and cultural institutions in the Atlanta community.
