Durham-based Mallarmé Chamber Players brings the heat with upcoming series concert "LATIN PASSIONS" on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 3:00 PM at Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship located at 4907 Garrett Rd in Durham.
Ignite your heart with an afternoon of passionate chamber music performed by harpist Jacquelyn Bartlett, cellist Nathan Leyland and mezzo soprano/ guitarist Salomé Sandoval. Latin in this context refers to the Latin language and its derivative cultures, specifically Spain, Italy, Cuba and South America. You will surely be moved by the beautiful music of Gaspar Cassadó, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Manuel De Falla, Antonio Lauro, Joaquin Nin, Fernando Sor and Hietor Villa-Lobos. The composer's dates span from late eighteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries and much of the music is based on traditional songs and dances.
Salomé Sandoval joins us from the Chapel Hill based musical group El Fuego (meaning 'fire' in Spanish). El Fuego is known for bringing a synthesis of early music and folk styles; versatility as singers and multi-instrumentalists; and unique repertoire from Spain and the New World colonies. Sandoval has received wide acclaim for singing while providing her own continuo parts on lutes and guitars; creating an unusually rich sound, full of melodic and rhythmic excitement.
"This music reflects all the fiery passion of European, Cuban and South American Latin cultures; the interesting combination of cello, harp, guitar and voice exemplifies the sounds and styles of this evocative chamber music. We invite you to come and be a part of it at this exciting live concert experience, in the beautiful ERUUF sanctuary!" says Mallarmé Artistic Director Suzanne Rousso.
Tickets: Individual tickets to Latin Passions performance are $25/ticket. All concerts are general admission seating.

About Mallarmé Chamber Players
The Mallarmé Chamber Players are a flexible ensemble of professional musicians based in Durham, North Carolina, whose mission is to enrich the lives of their community through outstanding chamber music. The ensemble distinguishes itself by its innovative educational programs, its commitment to creative collaboration with other organizations, its creation of significant new work, and its dedication to serve a diverse population.
Mallarmé annually presents a series of concerts that features great, diverse, and multidisciplinary chamber music. Mallarmé performs everything from Bach with period instruments to commission and performing brand new works. In 2010, Mallarmé released, to great acclaim, a cd on Albany/Videmus records of chamber music by African American composers.
Mallarmé is unique in that we do not work with a small core of musicians, but instead use the wonderful musical talent North Carolina has to offer to perform with the ensemble depending on the needs of the repertoire. Most of Mallarmé's musicians are members of professional organizations like the NC Symphony, freelance players or faculty members of the numerous institutions of higher learning.
Mallarmé is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c) 3 organization. The 2018/19 concert season is made possible in part by grants from the Durham Arts Council's Annual Arts Fund and the North Carolina Arts Council.
