Concert will kick off Hispanic Heritage Month and LatinSymphony Concert Series
at Miramar Cultural Center
The Miramar Cultural Center will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a tribute to Latin and Classical music presented by MAR Communications & Services, Inc. Famed pianist, Thomas Tirino will interpret the music of Ernesto Lecuona in “Lecuona, His Music, His Legacy.” The event, part of the LatinSymphony concert series, will take place on Saturday, October 3, 2015, 7 p.m. at the Miramar Cultural Center.
“We created the LatinSymphony series to offer a new appreciation of the richest and most influential Latin music,” says Maria Arreaza, President of MAR Communications & Services Inc. “By showcasing the fusion of Latin and Classical music, the next generation will be able to gain a greater understanding of our culture and heritage, and their contribution to the world of music.”
Thomas Tirino is recognized worldwide for his skillful interpretation of the music of Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona. Tirino is the driving force behind the revival of many of Lecuona’s masterfully crafted compositions such as “Damisela Encantadora,” “María La O,” “Malagueña,” “Rapsodia Negra,” “Estás En Mi Corazón” and many more. A graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, Tirino has performed concerts and given master-classes and lectures on Lecuona’s music all over the world, and has recorded several albums with the music of Lecuona.
Born in Guanabacoa, Cuba, Lecuona composed over six hundred pieces, mostly in the Cuban vein. His talent for composition influenced the Latin American world by raising Cuban music to classical status. At “Lecuona, His Music, His Legacy,” audiences will be transported on a memorable musical journey filled with nostalgia for Cuba’s glory days.
There is no one more appropriate to serve as master of ceremony than Nestor Rodriguez. Born in a Cuba to a musical family, Rodriguez was president of Classical South Florida. He has spent his career dedicated to furthering the arts by devoting his time and resources to non-profit organizations such as the Miami City Ballet, Florida Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chopin Foundation. As master of ceremony he will provide the audience with a special treat before the show conducting a special interactive Q&A with Tirino.
