About this Performance
This performance brings the thrilling sounds of Afro-Cuban dance music to the orchestral stage. MacArthur Genius Grant winner and composer Dafnis Prieto, dynamic Latin Dance band People of Earth, and the masterful musicians of the LA Phil tell the story of a young dancer discovering her own art, passions, and capabilities as she moves to Prieto’s unforgettable music. The audience will learn along with the young dancer all the sounds and flavors that make Latin dance music unique and expand what they can expect to see and hear when they visit an orchestral concert hall.
Adapted for Toyota Symphonies for Youth by Gabriel Globus-Hoenich and Nathan Farrington
