Erendira & Juan: Master Apprentice Duo Recital
November 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sones de México Ensemble members Juan Dies & Erendira Izguerra present a duet recital to show their work completed under their 2018 IACA Master/Apprentice Grant featuring Mexican folk music for violin, clarinet, saxophone, guitars, and bass.
Musician and Executive Director of Sones de Mexico Ensemble, Juan Dies (guitars/bass/voice), and musician Erendira Izguerra (violin/clarinet/sax/voice), will perform selections from various regions in Mexico and showcase their wok together under the 2018 Illinois Arts Council Agency Master/Apprentice Program.
Erendira met one-on-one with Juan Dies and studied various aspects of the geography, history, and music in Mexico. They both attended a folk festival in Mexico City: Son Para Milo 2018 featuring folk artists from all across Mexico. Erendira will present a short video report of her trip at this recital. A native from the Back of the Yards Neighborhood herself, Erendira chose this event as an opportunity build a community through the arts in this neighborhood.
The program will include original music and selections from the Calentano region (hot lands in Michoacán), the Huasteca region (northern Veracruz, southern part of San Luis Potosi and southern part of Tamaulipas), also selections from states Jalisco, Yucatán, Oaxaca and more. In addition to performing beautiful tunes, this concert will also include informative educational content.
This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
