7:30pm - Lazzara Performance Hall
University of North Florida

with Guest Artists: Cuarteto Flamenco del Sur

Cuarteto Flamenco del Sur combines the talents of the Romanian virtuoso guitarist Silviu Ciulei’s Maharajah Flamenco Trio and the internationally renowned percussionist and ethnomusicologist Michael Bakan. Together, they form one of the most exciting and dynamic flamenco nuevo, or “new flamenco,” groups on the world music scene today. Cuarteto’s passionate music blends the rich traditions of Spanish flamenco with diverse styles of jazz, classical, and popular music, mixing it all up with exotic instruments and scintillating rhythms from around the world—Cuba, Peru, and West Africa; Aboriginal Australia, the Middle East, and Indonesia. Their repertoire spans the gamut from bulerias to Bach, rumba to rock, and didjeridoo to duende. The result is a band that pushes to the cutting edge of world music innovation while at the same maintaining a firm foothold in one of the world’s great music traditions: flamenco!

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne, Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“Music is such a valuable part of life. The way it enriches one’s life and encourages creativity, I do not believe anything else can do as much. We in Jacksonville are certainly blessed to have the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus.”

Scott C. Snyder, President, Compass Consulting Group

“The Chorus expands your musical horizons and helps you grow as a person. You are surrounded with other young people who have something in common…their love of music. I have learned that music does, indeed, bring people and cultures together. The music we sing brings people hope for a better future of understanding and cooperation.”

Jasmine, 16, Touring and Concert Choirs

“JCC truly embodies some of the best qualities of team sports: camaraderie, discipline, patience, persistence, and positive mentoring.”

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent

“The JCC is more than just a chorus; it is truly a life-changing experience. The Chorus has opened me to new experiences, provided me with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and helped me discover singing is not just one of my interests but rather a lifelong passion.”

Emma, 17, Touring and Concert Choirs
