Passion and Fire – Music of Spain

The Kennedy Center presents an evening of music by Spanish composers, performed by the Pan American Symphony Orchestra.

The Kennedy Center is hosting an evening of music by Spain’s foremost composers —Isaac Albéniz, Manuel de Falla, and Enrique Granados— infused with the rhythms of Spanish folkdances and reflecting the traditions of the Gypsy, Jewish, Arab, African, and Greek peoples.

Joining the Pan American Symphony Orchestra (PASO) is the Washington National Opera’s Cafritz Young Artist Program graduate, mezzo-soprano, Allegra De Vita, singing Manuel de Falla’s dramatic flamenco-inspired masterpiece El Amor Brujo and Siete Canciones Españolas. Making her second appearance with PASO, direct from Spain, is Maria Juncal, a flamenco dancer who has toured internationally, performing in countries like Belgium, Canada, China, Cuba, and France.

The Pan American Symphony Orchestra

The Pan American Symphony Orchestra was founded over 30 years ago by music director, Sergio Alessandro Buŝlje, to introduce the Washington, D.C. area to symphonic music by Latin American and Latino composers.PASO aims to premiere new works by Latin American composers, showcase Latino music talent, and attract new listeners through small intimate concerts at small venues and big concert experiences at larger venues.
