Classically Cuban Concert | The Alonso Brothers

Classical, Latin/Salsa, Chamber Music, Jazz
Since 1994, FIU's Cuban Research Institute (CRI) has organized an annual concert series featuring music on Cuban themes by Cuban and other composers. The purpose of this public event is to celebrate, preserve, and promote the rich and diverse musical heritage of Cuba and its diaspora. CRI will hold the 14th installment of its Classically Cuban concert series on December 2, 2018, at the Wertheim Performing Arts Center of the FIU School of Music on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus. Virtuoso pianists and Cuban brothers Orlay Alonso and Orlando Alonso present an immersive experience that places the audience at the center of the "Golden Era" of Cuban music and entertainment of the 1940s and 1950s. From the sensuality and seductive melodies of the bolero, to the exotic and complex rhythms of the mambo and cha cha, Cuba's musical heritage spans centuries and has influenced most popular music of our time. Presented by the Alonso Brothers, this interactive show features a variety of Cuban styles such as mambo, cha cha, salsa, bolero, son, danzón, and conga, and includes works by Celia Cruz, Ernesto Lecuona, Ignacio Cervantes, Miguel Faílde, and Dámaso Pérez Prado, among others. The Alonso Brothers: Equally talented, these brothers dazzle with their artistic exuberance and passionate expression. Having played the piano since they each were six years old, Orlando Alonso and Orlay Alonso both attended the National School of the Arts in Havana and earned degrees from Manhattan School of Music and Yale University, among several other prestigious institutions. As a duo, each brother brings his own signature style to the stage. Inspired by their communicative gifts, elegance, and polish, the Alonso brothers shine with a charismatic stage presence that is a pleasure to behold.
